Hard to disagree with that, always been a fan of White and he's in virtually career best form.
Still though, one would have to assume there is a bit of a black mark against 86 surely.
What is the point in picking a 34 year old that hasn't played for Australia since 2015? Surely Short or Turner would be better looking towards the WC.
They didn't pick him last year when he dominated the one day comp they picked Heazlett who couldn't even make the Bulls' side. Now they go back to him after he told them they had no clue 12 months ago.
Certainly never dull in Cricket Australia.
Short would of been a better pick
2016/2017- 457 runs @ 76- go away old man.
2017/2018- 199 runs @ 49- come on in.
As you've said yourself, they definitely factor in Big Bash form, and he's been the form batsman of the comp beside Short.
With all that being said, I would've picked Ashton Turner.
Yeah you and me both. The guy is just so underrated. Consistently produces when it counts (not necessarily consistently per se) and never gets a mention for any of these sides.
I just wanna know what Maxi has done
Prob shagged a team mates mrs
Like Thurston used to then
He wasn’t the first and won’t be the last, just a popular name to throw around.
Broncos royalty have done far worse and I know it as fact as it happened to my family ;)
The raging fool was known to run amok
If he were royalty, he’d be the court jester at best. Jokes are always on him :)
He was in form last year too. Domestic player of the year. They laughed at him and he blew up. They searched the world and picked anyone but him and found an uncapped state player.
It just makes no sense a week after the big we are building to the WC speech to then pick a guy you haven’t wanted for three years.
Pick a path. Is it youth or not?
12 months ago when Hohns was asked what about White?
Hohns responded in swift fashion, describing the veteran’s international record as “hardly earth-shattering”.
“Cameron has had plenty of opportunities ... he has had plenty of opportunities in the past and it’s probably fair to say performed okay without being earth shattering,” Hohns said at the time.
The selectors can’t even pick their selection criteria
Our ODI form is deplorable.
Only won five of our 15 in 2017 and one of our last 10. We could drop to fifth in the world with a loss tomorrow. Three years after winning the WC, and one year out from the next one.
Warner was sick yesterday and missed training.
That is a team that can easily win the cup...it is also a team that could go out in straight sets...they do have Smith and Starc though, massive trump cards.
If we're serious about winning the World Cup then Finch won't be there, he's the antithesis of the ideal opening partner for Warner.
Dave needs someone who can hold up an end, rotate the strike and not throw away their wicket needlessly. Finch generally always goes, fail, fail, 100, fail, good start but out for 30, fail, fail, 50 off 30 balls.
Or something similar. I think Khawaja is the best opening partner for Warner right now in both shorter forms.
Two things that cost him his is running between wickets and fielding. Khawaja doesn't rotate the strike at all. It's his huge weakness.
Finch and Khawaja made their debut same day in 2013- Khawaja has played 18 games in that time and Finch 85. They just don't want him in the shorter forms. They go to him when they have to but they move on again quickly.
Only six of that 18 have been at home, so if he's on tour and we need a change in comes Khawaja and then dropped again.
His State form in OD goes up and down as well which wouldn't fill them with confidence.
2017- av 63
2016- av 25
2015- av 30
2014- av 74
2013- av 71
2012- av 38
2011- av 73
2010- av 28
2009- av 41
2008- av 27
Finch has eight international 100's in the same time Khawaja has averaged 31 and has none. It always seems he's not the type of short form player they want.
It’s weird cos he goes alright in T20 and Tests
