Bancroft, who was permitted to play for his Perth club Willetton during his ban, could make his Big Bash return against Hobart Hurricanes on Sunday.
“Thank you to every person, group, team and community I have come across over the last 9 months. You know who you are,” the 26-year-old Western Australian wrote in a post on his Instagram account.
Bancroft broke his silence on the ball-tampering affair on Wednesday, casting Warner as the instigator of the plot to manipulate the ball’s condition with a piece of sandpaper during the test match against South Africa.
Smith and Warner remain suspended until the end of March.
