Justin Langer: Bancroft will have to be mentally strong

Australia coach Justin Langer hold a press conference ahead of the start of the Ashes.

Langer believes a return for Cameron Bancroft would be a great story but knows it is likely to go down badly with England fans.

Bancroft is in line to open the batting in Thursday’s series opener at Edgbaston, joining Steve Smith and David Warner as Australia prepare to select all three of the players who were banned for their roles in the sandpaper ball-tampering scandal.
