White in shock recall to Australia ODI side

White in shock recall to Australia ODI side

Former Australia Twenty20 captain White told RSN Radio this time previous year: "You can get picked to play for Australia in any format out of the Big Bash, really".

Australian cricket captain Steve Smith has defended the selection of Cameron White in the one-day side for the series against England.

A calf injury to explosive batsman Lynn opened an unlikely door for 34-year-old White, who played the last of his 88 ODIs in 2015 and has since been critical of a pro-youth policy he felt did not reward the performance of senior players. It doesn't make a lot of sense.

Forecast: Cold today, snow possible Sunday
The Modesto Irrigation District reported that more than half of an inch of rain had fallen in downtown Modesto on Tuesday. According to the weather service, the average high temperature for January 11 is just 31 degrees.

Chief selector Trevor Hohns had high praises for White and insisted that his present form has earned him the recall.

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".

"Making a few runs in the Big Bash hasn't hurt", he quipped.

The 10 bodies were found in December in a mass grave near a cemetery in Inn Din village. Then members of the security forces shot them dead, the military said.

He has made 199 runs at an average of 49.75 in his four domestic 50-over appearances this season and is the latest man to jump ahead of Glenn Maxwell, his fellow Victorian, in the pecking order.

"Maybe it is a little ironic, (although) I'd like to think that my one-day cricket for Victoria hasn't hurt my chances of getting this opportunity".

White was surprised at the recall, although he said he never gave up hope of a return to the national side. But it was just a comment on selection, which was an opinion-based thing, and I had a different opinion like many other people do as well. "He's playing very well", said Trevor Hohns, chairman of selectors.
