Australian batsman Cameron Bancroft is set to make his return from a nine-month ban for his part in the ball-tampering scandal after being included in the Perth Scorchers squad for their match on Sunday.

Bancroft's ban officially expired on Saturday and has been thrown straight into the Scorchers 13-man squad for their Big Bash match against the Hobart Hurricanes on Sunday.

He marked the end of his ban by posting an inspirational quote from Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton on Instagram, with a caption of his own.

"What a journey this has been over the last 9 months. For me, in what seemed like troubled times in April I can remember lying in bed feeling for something. Some inspiration and motivation to get me out of bed," he wrote.

"After thinking, reading, wondering and living it came to me that I had a choice. To lay in suffering or get up, show up and act. Action led to motivation and motivation gave me all the inspiration I needed.

"Here I am now. Grateful of where I am and the person I continue to grow to be.

"Thank you to every person, group, team and community I have come across over the last 9 months. You know who you are."
