White recalled in Australia's ODI squad

White recalled in Australia's ODI squad

Cameron White has replaced injured Chris Lynn in Australia's squad for this month's one-day global series against England cricket team, Cricket Australia said on Thursday. With Lynn's calf injury, Maxwell's comeback was much anticipated but the selectors shut all the doors by preferring White over Glenn.

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. While White did exclaim surprise over his inclusion in the side (in place of injured Chris Lynn) he also said that he never gave up hope of making it back to the Aussie side.

White suggested at the time that the Australian side was being treated as a "development team" with Hohns hitting back, describing White's worldwide career as "nothing earth-shattering".

Lynn injured his calf nearly immediately after being selected for the ODI series, with Maxwell the hot tip to replace him after good form with the bat in the Sheffield Shield and the Big Bash League. He's playing very well. White, who plays for Melbourne Renegades, has scored 285 runs this season at 142.5. White who debuted in 2005 played 88 ODIs and 47 T20s.

"I'll sit down with Steve when he gets to Melbourne and have a chat with him", Maxwell said on Tuesday. "He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage".

"We get along really well, we've got a good friendship". "They're [the selectors] rewarding him on performance, and I think that's great".
