Cameron White is 35 and there's a less compelling case for him than the likes of Burns, Maxwell, Wade etc. He has a career average of 40 and a Shield average this season of 41. To get a call-up at his age, he has to be doing Voges-like numbers, which he isn't. The cupboard is relatively bare, the only players I think are in the mix are Harris, Renshaw, Bancroft, Khawaja, Patterson, SMarsh, Head, Handscomb, Wade, Burns, Maxwell, with Dan Hughes and Jake Lehmann real outside chances. We need six batsmen out of that lot.When you look at technique and temperament we have seriously failed picking Head, M Marsh and Finch, so i don’t think the selectors have even picked the right types at all. Yeah I’d go back to Burns, Wade and Maxwell. At least they’ve got the runs. I mean we only lost Adelaide by 30 runs, picking a more established type might have been able to turn 20 into 60 and got us home.
What are your thoughts on White?
