    Cameron White's role in the Australian ODI team

    So what should it be? He obviously isn't going to be bowling much, so he is obviously more of a batsman and part-time bowler, and yet he bats down the order, where an all-rounder would sit and he is not that (IMO) and I'm not sure if he is a finisher in the Albie Morkel and/or Jacob Oram role, so he should probably look to bat a lot higher and before Brad Haddin as I think he is wasted at 7 or 8.

    So vote away.

    Middle order batsman who can't and shouldn't bowl. Definitely not one of the top 10 ODI batsman in Australia, therefore shouldn't be picked.

    It can't be any simpler.

    D Hussey is the better candidate for his role. Basically fighting for the same spot.

    LRO

    We have been waiting for a few years now for him to enter and grab his opportunity with both hands. He needs to work on the balance between brain/brawn in his OD game and try and add more versatility to his scoring range to take the next step IMO.

    Yep.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    D hussey too has been bogged down this series, not able to turn the strike over efficiently enough to release pressure in the middle overs. We know he can play the big shots and nice cricket shots, yet hitting the fielder too often is a crime in ODI cricket.

    As i said in the match thread, he is a top-order batsman and that's where he should bat, but they shouldn't pick him to play the role of a lower-order tonker, because he is pretty poor at it and ends up being a pretty useless player then.

    And Hodge is better than them both

    He and Hussey should be persisted for sometime, and be allowed to occupy No.5 and No.6 at the moment. Both can chip in with 5 overs each to make up the 5th bowler option. The other 4 should be genuine bowlers and not bits and pieces like Hopesy.

    Fully agree. Once he comes out of his injury, should be accomodated for the bigger failure of both. But, Can Hodge bowl?

    Yeah, a bit. Probably get away with four or five overs.

    David Hussey has been the only middle-order batsman from Australia who has looked somewhat decent everytime he has come into bat, he got starts in almost every game but failed to go onto and capitalise on it, though the same thing holds true for Mike Hussey in this series.

    He's not bad but not as good as either White or Hussey.

    I like him, but wouldn't pick him.

    He's not the only problem though, Hussey should bat at 6, and not be moved at all.

    (Michael Hussey that is)
