England probe Bairstow-Bancroft clash

England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow is under investigation after allegedly headbutting Australian batsman Cameron Bancroft in a Perth nightclub. There has been no report of any incident from the venue, security or police and there was no injury reported. 'Following an initial conversation with Jonny Bairstow we understand the context and will follow up with England players and management after the Brisbane Test'.

The incident reportedly occurred at the Avenue Bar in Perth ahead of England's warm-up game against Western Australia.

Bancroft was at that stage playing for Western Australia and hadn't yet been chosen for Australia.

Australian opener David Warner was famously banned for two matches for a similarly minor confrontation with England player Joe Root at a Birmingham bar four years ago, and the European Central Bank will be under pressure to take heavy action.

England go into the final day of the first Ashes 2017-18 Test with just 56 runs to defend on the final day with Australia having all their 10 wickets intact.

The Bairstow incident is potentially another major setback for an England side that is nearly certain to head to Adelaide one down in the five-match series.

About the size of a grain of salt, the sensor has no battery or antenna and is activated when it gets wet from stomach juices. The patch records the date and time the pill was ingested, and relays this information to a smartphone app.

A team insider who was at the club told Sportsmail on Sunday: 'Jonny and Cameron were drinking together and Jonny bought him a drink. "Their heads met. They carried on drinking together".

"Cricket Australia did not want to become involved last night but England suspect the Australians have allowed their media to fire bullets for them".

"They say Bairstow and Bancroft knocked heads while grappling rugby-style in a non-aggressive manner". The suggestion of a headbutt is complete b*******'. Bairstow since then has apologised to Bancroft.

It's the second incident that has sparked controversy in England's Ashes campaign after vice-captain Ben Stokes was suspended for his involvement in a pub brawl before the series.

But he was one of three England players fined by the European Central Bank in the wake of a night out in Bristol that saw Ben Stokes arrested for alleged assault.

There is an acceptance within the European Central Bank that they can not keep the players confined to hotel rooms on tours that last for weeks on end but the last thing they needed was more accusations that any of their players had done anything wrong.
