Jonny Bairstow: ECB investigating 'headbutt' involving Cameron Bancroft before Ashes

Jonny Bairstow: ECB investigating 'headbutt' involving Cameron Bancroft before Ashes

Bairstow was apparently sledged by the Australian players, which also invited a send-off from Australia vice-captain David Warner after Bairstow was dismissed for 42.

The wicket-keeper is being investigated by the European Central Bank over claims he aimed a butt at Australia ace Bancroft in Perth.

ENGLAND were in damage control on Sunday night after revelations emerged that star wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow launched an unprovoked headbutt on Australian opener Cameron Bancroft in a Perth nightclub.

Reports in Australia suggested Bairstow headbutted batsman Bancroft on a night out in Perth four weeks ago.

England were in Perth for a two-day match against a Western Australia XI, their first outing of the tour before heading to Adelaide and Townsville for four-day matches against a Cricket Australia XI.

At the time, Bancroft was not really in serious contention to make the Ashes squad.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it had spoken to Bairstow regarding the alleged incident and will "follow up with England players and management after the Brisbane Test".

He later said he supports freedom of speech rights. "The sticker has attracted attention many times before, Fonseca said". Sheriff Troy Nehls said, "The Facebook post accomplished its objective and now we know who owns the truck".

They had arrived in Australia with questions having been raised, including by ex-England opener Michael Vaughan, about their team culture following the barrage of punches thrown by Stokes in the hours after a one-day worldwide against the West Indies in September.

At the start of the tour, head coach Trevor Bayliss confirmed that England's players would not be subject to curfews, although the expectation would be that they were to abstain from drinking between matches.

Bairstow was reportedly quick to apologise after the incident, and there is no police involvement or official complaints.

Bairstow indeed was fined by European Central Bank in the fall-out of the Stokes affair along with Liam Plunkett and Jake Ball for being out late - but doing nothing wrong - on the same night that the talisman got involved in a serious altercation.

Stokes is not on England's tour of Australia and remains unavailable to play, while he awaits a decision on whether or not he will face charges. We certainly don't want to keep players in their rooms because it is a long tour.

"I understand from the camp that Bairstow and Bancroft were having a drink together", Agnew told the BBC.
