Australia batsman Cameron White has conceded that he is unlikely to keep hold of his spot in the ODI side following his disappointing performances against England.

In a surprising move, the national selectors opted to recall White for the recent ODI series against England after big-hitting batsman Chris Lynn was ruled out with a calf injury.

However, despite playing in three of the five matches, White was unable to have an impact with the bat as he made scores of 15 not out, 17 and three.

Finishing with a dismal average of 17.50 as England cruised to a 4-1 series win, White, who was dropped for the fifth ODI in Perth, admitted that his chances of reviving his international career are likely over.

“After being dropped from the last game it’s probably unlikely (I’ll get another chance) but I’m not really sure, to be honest,” he was quoted as saying by The Canberra Times. “I definitely feel as though I’ve missed a chance.

“I batted down the order in that first game and then had two cracks at No.3 and obviously didn’t get a score.

“Any time you get an opportunity like that and then don’t nail a big score, it’s a missed opportunity.”

With the ODI series over, White will now represent the Melbourne Renegades in their Big Bash League (BBL) semi-final against the Adelaide Strikers on February 2.
