Profile

It is incredible to think that Cameron White became captain of the Victoria Bushrangers nearly ten years ago.

Approaching his 30th birthday, White is now one of the senior members in the 27 man state squad.

In his debut season, White picked up his only ever career 10-for in a dominant display against the Warriors.

With just one season under his belt, the blonde haired rookie was handed the captaincy of the one-day side, before taking the reins of the Shield side the following year.

The early years saw White succeed as a batsman, with plenty of half-centuries in both forms of the game. He was still developing his leg-spin, and although he was taking wickets, it was seen as a weakness in his game.

An impressive start to the 2006/07 domestic season saw White hit hundreds against Tasmania and New South Wales.

The big hitting Victorian was rewarded with a call-up to the t20 squad, and he delivered with 40* and 45 in his first two matches.

A series of handy all-round contributions eventually led to his Test selection for the 2008 tour of India.

Despite removing Sachin Tendulkar on debut, White struggled against the best spin playing nation in the world. He managed five wickets and scored 146 on a mediocre tour. He has not played Test cricket since.

His ODI record has been much better, with White even filling in as Ricky Ponting’s deputy on a number of occasions. 2,037 runs from 87 matches probably doesn’t do him justice, with White often having to attack from the get go.

The all-rounder struck two centuries for Australia, with scores of 105 against both England and Pakistan.

In his 38 game t20 career, White prided himself on his ability to clear the fence. His unbeaten 64 off just 26 deliveries isn’t his highest score, but it did lead to a famous tie against the Kiwis back in 2010.

He finished his international career with 38 sixes from as many matches.

You get the feeling that the 2013/14 season could be a big one for White. The 130 game veteran has now hit 17 centuries in first-class cricket and has taken 185 wickets.

With several high quality tweakers in the side, White should be able to focus solely on his batting.

After years of his service to the national side and stints in the IPL, the Victorian and Melbourne Stars skipper can concentrate on returning his teams to the summit of Australian domestic cricket.
