IANS  |  Perth 

Tainted Australian opener has been cleared to play in after an extraordinary general meeting involving 16 Clubs.

Bancroft, who is serving a nine-month ban for his role in the infamous ball-tampering row, received 14 votes in his favour, allowing him to feature for his club side Willetton.

According to rules, any ban handed out by (CA) is also applicable at the club level in the state, unlike other states like New South Wales, which allows for the participation of and in club cricket despite their bans.

Bancroft's ban ends only in late December after which he would be allowed to play for Western Australia, Perth Scorchers and also the national team, if selected.
