A wicket-keeper and top-order batsman, Bancroft was given a WACA rookie contract leading into the 2012-13 season as a result of three break through appearances with the Warriors in the JLT One-Day cup in 2011-12 and strong performances at under-age level. Bancroft was handed an opportunity at JLT Sheffield Shield level in the 2013-14 season and took it with both hands, establishing himself as WA's opener. Bancroft scored 896 runs including three centuries in the 2014-15 Shield season, leading to a call-up for the Test squad to face Bangladesh only for the tour to be postponed. Bancroft backed it up with 726 runs in the 2015-16 Shield campaign and earned his Australia debut in a T20 International as a wicketkeeper-batsman. He began the 2017/18 Sheffield Season with an unbeaten 228 against South Australia at the WACA, earning him a test call up and an Ashes debut.
