Australian all-rounder Cameron White believes it’s “unlikely” he will get another chance in Australian ODI side. White making a return to the national side after three years made just 35 runs at 17.5 in the recently concluded ODI series against England. The 34-year-old was dropped from the final match.

Prior to this series, White had played just one ODI in close to seven years.

“I definitely feel as though I missed a chance. Anytime you get an opportunity like that and don’t get a big score, it’s a missed opportunity. After being dropped for the last game, it’s probably unlikely (I’ll be back). But I’m not really sure,” White was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

Hussey backs Stoinis at No.3

Michael Hussey backed Marcus Stoinis to continue at No.3 after the all-rounder scored 87 in the final ODI at Perth. Australia will be defending the World Cup next year in England and there are slots up for the grab.

Hussey told The Unplayable Podcast: “Initially I was a bit sceptical about it because I just think he’s so valuable at the back of the innings. But having watched his batting in Perth, batting at No.3 was really impressive. His defence looked really solid, he’s still got the power and all the shots.

“I thought it was actually a really good move and something positive to come out of that game looking forward. I think he could be someone to bat No.3 for Australia.

“He can play dual roles; if the pitch is doing a bit and he has to work his way through it and not be so aggressive, he’s got the technique to be able to handle that. But if it’s a really flat pitch or Australia are chasing a really big score, he can be really aggressive right from the start and we saw him do that in Perth. I think it was a really good move.”
