The 29-year old Australian who had broken down in tears for the ball-tampering incident in March said that, "The scandal was not on his mind during his first game back".
The former opener, who is now playing in Global T20 league, also dismissed the suggestions that he should not be allowed to make a comeback to cricket.
"There's been times where I've felt really sad, there's been times where I've felt really angry", Bancroft said. Can't sit at home and dwell on the past, you've got to move forward, and I felt this was a great opportunity to get out there, play cricket and be happy. I was excited about the chance to come here and play, and to do what we love.
"I feel like I've stepped closer to coming out of that and moving on with my life and also with my cricketing career too". If people hang in the hotel, they'll see us hanging out with each other and stuff.
