    Cameron White

    Just wondering people's thoughts on him, hes only 23 years old and is starting to mature with bat and ball. Anyone think he is a possibility to play test cricket or will he just be a 1 day player? IMO he is the best 23 yr old or younger we have in Australia and should replace Symonds as soon as possible as i believe his technique is much better and can bowl some handy leggy's which are improving all the time. Previous to this year he used to get starts of 30's and 40's and give away his wicket softly but he has really matured as a player and the stint at Somerset as seen him come back a much improved player.

    IMO he should have played in the 4th Test infront of Symonds, until Watson back he should get a run in the batting all rounder's spot. He should also make the ODI squad, batting at seven.

    Not impressed with his bowling yet.. but it's just as good as Symonds.

    I like his batting and i think he can force his way into the team Especialy the ODI team on the strength of that if he continues to improve like he has recently.

    Certainly think he could make a decent batting allrounder.

    i think the fact he is a leggy means he is more likely to get a wicket than Symo..

    however i hope he in the future is just as good as Afridi coz thats not good enough

    he defiantely seemed to bowl really well last night in Adelaide

    TBH i think Australia needs "Cameron White the promising young Leg-Spin Bowler" more than they do "Cameron White the promising young Batting All-rounder who bowls a bit of leg-spin"

    His ability to clear the boundary is nothing short of astonishing. Not only did he score 141* in a Twenty20 game last season, but in a separate innings (of 116*) he hit Heath Streak into the car park while not wearing a helmet.

    Get him in the ODI side at 7.

    His batting definitely has something, even if he was playing his home matches on a road in our summer. Leg-spin's notoriously difficult to master too & he's only a kid in leggie terms really, so he has every chance in ODIs at least.

    Doesn't seem to get an awful lot of turn for a leggie from the little I've seen of him, but then neither does Kumble & look what he's done for India.

    White's leggies are definitely more in the Kumble/Afridi mould. Fast, flat and without much turn, but he's a giant of a man and should be able to extract fearsome bounce. I doubt he'll ever take many wickets at Test level, but I'd not be surprised if he turns out to be the next Andrew Symonds in ODIs.

    I would have to agree. Watching him bat is cool too.

    I'll go out on a limb and say Cameron White should be a shoe-in for the 2007 World Cup squad. If he doesn't make it, there's seriously something wrong.

    White should be playing at the M.C.G. today.
    Symonds is a proven test failure.
    White will be in the squad for the World Cup and this seasons O.D.I.s.
    Hogg will be retired at the end of the World Cup IMO.
