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

Selectors Snub Glenn Maxwell For The ODI Side

Last week, captain Steve Smith called for Maxwell to "train a bit smarter" and trade in the "funky stuff" for the basics.

Having been dropped before the 2015 World Cup, White returns to the side with planning already well-advanced for the 2019 edition.

"Cameron's in very good form, as his figures demonstrate".

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

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

Cameron White has earned a recall to the Australian side. He might be asked by the Australian management to bat at No. 4.

The first ODI between Australia and England will be played on Sunday. Following a fabulous display of batting in the Big Bash League, the veteran batsman was picked over the star-allrounder, Glen Maxwell. "It doesn't make a lot of sense", White said. I'm just a little anxious to be honest, on the [lack of] importance the selectors are putting on domestic cricket.

"I don't know what that means for Glenn in terms of selection going forward". However, White's selection came as a surprise as the veteran himself thought that his global career was nearly over. Heazlett had yet to play 50-over cricket for his state at the time. "Obviously I'm really looking forward to the opportunity and getting in amongst it", White was quoted as saying by

"Took me under the wing seven years ago when he didn't have to". However he has in recent times been on the fringes of the Victorian squad, playing far less consistently than Maxwell, and had widely stated his belief that his worldwide days were over.

"I was very surprised when Trevor Hohns rang me", White said.

"In the back of my mind I probably never gave up all hope". It's up to me now whether I can make the most of it.

But for the time being, his focus is on making the most of a moment he had feared may never come again.

"I'll listen to him and do my best to get on his right side and do everything I can to play for Australia". "I'm sure he'll be feeling it".

White was contentiously preferred over the in-form Maxwell, who had been a mainstay of Australia's limited-overs teams of the past five years.

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