Australia recall White to replace Lynn for England ODIs

Australia recall White to replace Lynn for England ODIs

Glenn Maxwell, who was rumoured to be in the running despite being left out of the initial squad, was overlooked once again.

Maxwell himself conceded that he has not lived up to expectations in the 50-over format as of late as in his last 20 matches, he has only passed fifty in two of his 16 innings.

Skipper Steve Smith suggested that Maxwell needs to "train smarter".

Lynn was ruled out of the series after suffering a calf injury during a Big Bash League game for Brisbane Heat with the Queenslander being named in the Australia squad after almost a year.

Furthermore, Maxwell had the numbers on his side as he is now the highest run-scorer in the Sheffield Shield with 590 runs in five matches at an average of 73.75. "They're [the selectors] rewarding him on performance, and I think that's great".

"I've got no idea (where I'll bat), we've got a team meeting coming up shortly so I might get a bit more of an idea there". "We get along really well, we've got a good friendship", Maxwell said. "He's playing very well", selector Trevor Hohns said in a statement on Thursday, referring to White's impressive displays for Melbourne Renegades in this year's Big Bash League.

Given the impact and the form he has maintained throughout the Australian summer thus far, it seems freaky why Maxwell was snubbed.

White, who last featured for Australia in January 2015 has been named as a replacement for hard-hitting batsman Chris Lynn after the latter suffered a calf injury that has ruled him out of the series.

I'm not saying Maxwell is the ideal cricketer, but the numbers don't lie, and weigh heavily in his favour.

"Cameron's in very good form, as his figures demonstrate".

White has been one of the premier performers in the BBL, sitting second on the run scoring charts with 285 at an average of 142.5.

His recall leaves Victorian teammate Maxwell at the crossroads with the national side already planning for the 2019 World Cup.
