Stoinis: Cameron White is 'one of the smartest players in worldwide cricket'

Stoinis: Cameron White is 'one of the smartest players in worldwide cricket'

Australia have added Cameron White to their squad for the upcoming ODI series against England.

These words resulted in a riposte from Hohns, stating the White's career had hardly been "earth-shattering", but after a happier exchange on Thursday, White saw the irony in his own selection after strong BBL displays.

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 ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage". Steve Smith, the Australian captain, previously stated that Maxwell's training habits was not up to an global standard and contributed to his axing. Hopefully I can. Making a few runs in the Big Bash hasn't hurt. "It could well be the same case when I go back to Shield cricket later in the year as well". "He's one of the smartest players in Australian cricket, worldwide cricket", Stoinis told reporters in Melbourne on Friday (January 12). "We get along really well, we've got a good friendship", Maxwell said. "The selectors have come out and said that he probably hasn't done enough in the last 20 games", he told Channel Nine. "I'm batting with a pretty clear mind and watching the ball and playing it on its merits".

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.




Now after getting the recall for the national side, a "grateful" White was very surprised when Trevor Hohns called him to deliver the good news.

White's unexpected selection ahead of Glenn Maxwell follows Tim Paine's shock and inspired inclusion in Australia's Ashes-winning team despite the wicketkeeper not even being Tasmania's number one choice.

Australia's odds of a whitewash are $6.50, while England are paying $51 to win each of the five games.
