Cameron White replaces Chris Lynn in Australia's ODI squad for England series

Share

White's exodus from national duties is set to end after he was added to the 14-man squad to face England in the five-match ODI series starting in Melbourne on Sunday.

Glenn "Big Show" Maxwell's talent has never been in doubt. With Lynn's calf injury, Maxwell's comeback was much anticipated but the selectors shut all the doors by preferring White over Glenn.

Australian captain Steve Smith spoke of the decision not to include Maxwell, and said the divisive all-rounder could "train smarter".

Maxwell denied rumours of a rift. "The way that he's batting is as good as I've seen him in terms of his tempo", Finch had said.

White has been in superb limited overs form on the domestic stage, with 285 runs at an average of 142.5 and a strike rate of 115.85 for Melbourne Renegades in the BBL.

When asked which position he is expecting to play, White said, "I've got no idea, we've got a team meeting coming up shortly so I might get a bit more of an idea there", White said.

"I'll listen to him and do my best to get on his right side and do everything I can to play for Australia".

"In the back of my mind I never really gave up all hope".

He hasn't played in Aussie colours since before the 2015 World Cup.

"He's one of the leading run-scorers in the BBL, he's experienced, he's a very smart cricketer and he's a good fielder", Hohns said.

The 34-year-old has not represented Australia in any format since 2015 and was last summer involved in a spat with national selector Trevor Hohns.

In the worldwide arena, Neds have the Aussies at $1.38 to win the series, with England at the juicy odds of $3.10.

He was then not included in Australia's one day squad for the series against England, even though he has two scores over 50 in his four Big Bash games thus far.
