Australia recall White to replace Lynn for England ODIs

Cricket Australia (CA) on Thursday recalled veteran batsman Cameron White for the five-match One-day International (ODI) series against England, starting here on Sunday.

The omission of Maxwell from the initial squad last week came as a shock to some commentators and it was speculated he would earn a recall when Lynn was ruled out of the series against England because of a calf injury. 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.

The 34-year old's call-up comes after a relatively good domestic season where he is now the second highest run-scorer in the BBL and years of vast experience leading his domestic side, something to which Trevor Hohns, the Australian national selector, pointed out to their choice.

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

"Cameron White is in very good form, he is one of the leading run-scorers in the KFC BBL. He's playing very well", Hohns said in a statement.

White has represented Australia in four Tests, 88 ODIs and 47 T20Is and even captained the Australian T20I side for a while. It's something I've always wanted to do. get back and have another go at it.

"He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage", he added.

"I've got no idea (where I'll bat), we've got a team meeting coming up shortly so I might get a bit more of an idea there". "They're [the selectors] rewarding him on performance, and I think that's great".
