WHITE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE

Cameron White’s international career appears to be dead and buried, and his state playing career could also be in danger if his form with the bat does not improve in the near future.

His batting form of late has simply been atrocious, with initially his slump only being on the international stage, but now the runs have dried up in state cricket too.

Despite all of this, White will still go on to earn a huge amount of money from this year’s IPL, even though many England players have been unable to earn any IPL contracts at all.

He has been stripped of his Australia T20 captaincy role and consequently dropped from the side, and replaced by international debutant George Bailey.

The runs have now dried up for White in state cricket, but his coach has come out and spoken up for the all-rounder saying that all players are allowed to go through slumps in form, and that White is still valuable to the team when he is not making runs as his captaincy and leadership are crucial to his side.

Initially White was viewed as a leg spinner who could bat a bit by the Australian selectors, but as the years have gone by, he has turned himself into predominantly a big hitting middle order batsman, using his gunn and moore bat to hit six, after four, after six.

White is still only 28 years old, and that he should not be completely disregarded by the Australian selectors after just one, albeit awful, Summer. He still holds a respectable average of 41 in First Class cricket, but if White wants to continue to be a presence in Australian cricket, then he could do to find a couple of big scores before the end of the season.
