Cameron White issued a reminder to everyone as to why he’s regarded one of the most dangerous strikers of the ball in the country again in BBL|03 as he remained an exemplary leader at the Melbourne Stars.
The Stars skipper proved his skills as an opening batsman, scoring 207 runs in eight matches, including two half centuries, seven sixes and a phenomenal 18 fours.
White’s form was so impressive with the Stars it earned him a recall to international duties. He was forced to miss the Stars penultimate match as he went on to shine for Australia in the T20 format.
The former Australian T20 captain was again a key part of Australia’s dominant T20 display over England at the start of the 2014, scoring 78, 58* and 41 in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney respectively. He also put in solid performances against New Zealand and South Africa.
The 31-year-old reaffirmed himself as one of Australia’s best T20 cricketers when he was back in Australian colours at the ICC T20 World Cup in Bangladesh throughout March.
White also continues to keep a dream return to One-Day International cricket alive with another stand out domestic one-day series that saw him crowned Player of the Series for the Matador BBQ’s Cup – the second time he has secured the award in two years.
He smashed a top score of 137 for Australia A during the Quadrangular One-Day series in Darwin in August.
The Stars brutal hitter made it rain boundaries against our cross-town rivals on two occasions in BBL|03. He hit three fours and three sixes on his way to 53 in the first Derby at the MCG.
But, a fortnight later the Captain launched to his highest score of the tournament, hitting an unbeaten 84. He reached his half century off just 29 balls and helped ensure the Stars’ winning streak continued.
White is contracted with the Melbourne Stars until the end of BBL|05.
One of the world’s best T20 thinkers
