Jonny Bairstow headbutted Cameron Bancroft outside a nightclub

Jonny Bairstow headbutted Cameron Bancroft outside a nightclub

Bairstow since then has apologised to Bancroft. "Both Bancroft's group and the England players continued drinking together at the Avenue bar in Perth".

Bairstow is now facing questions over his behaviour just months after Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were involved in an early-hours brawl after a night out in Bristol.

The episode - where Bairstow allegedly head-butted Bancroft - took place at a hotel when England were in town for their first tour match, a one-day affair against a Western Australian XI on November 4.

Wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow is now being investigated for allegedly headbutting Australia's debutant Cameron Bancroft, which occurred in Perth at the beginning of England's tour of Australia.

He plays county cricket for Yorkshire, and made his England Test debut as against West Indies in May 2012.

Half-centuries from Bancroft and fellow opener David Warner saw Australia to 114-0 at the close.

A spokeswoman for the Australian also declined to comment but Fox Sports News reported that the incident had occurred at the Avenue bar in Perth and that there had been no involvement by police.

At the time, Bancroft was not really in serious contention to make the Ashes squad.

The 35-year-old was backed by the English media who argued the reports were simply trying to stir the pot with no facts behind them.

The ECB said there was no report of any incident from the venue, security or police and no injury reported.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it had spoken to Bairstow regarding the alleged incident and will "follow up with England players and management after the Brisbane Test".

Another source told Sportsmail 'Jonny is a rugby man and part of their culture is to bump heads if someone buys them a drink.

The players compiled a code of conduct at the start of this tour in an attempt to avoid any repeat of the Bristol incident that has cast such a cloud on this tour but at the same time management were determined to carry on treating the players as adults.

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.
