The Big Show must go on: Maxwell defiant despite ODI snubbing

Cameron White of the Renegades has been recalled to Australia's ODI squad to face England ahead of Glenn Maxwell

Selectors have Glenn Maxwell as a replacement for the injured Chris Lynn for the upcoming on day worldwide series against England.

"He's one of the leading run-scorers in the BBL, he's experienced, he's a very smart cricketer and he's a good fielder", Hohns said.

Many were expecting Glenn Maxwell to find his way into the squad in spite of Steve Smith's previous comments about his training, but Stoinis isn't surprised about White's inclusion. "He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage".

"Maybe it is a little ironic, (although) I'd like to think that my one-day cricket for Victoria hasn't hurt my chances of getting this opportunity". "It could well be the same case when I go back to Shield cricket later in the year as well".

"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".

"I'll listen to him and do my best to get on his right side and do everything I can to play for Australia".

Now White is being rewarded for his form in the BBL, where he averages 142.5 this season, though he has also been one of the star players in the domestic one-day cup in the past few years.

While his domestic form has been strong, White's recall is all the more surprising given he was involved in a spat with national chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns last summer.

"In the back of my mind I never really gave up all hope".

White was contentiously preferred over the in-form Maxwell, who had been a mainstay of Australia's limited-overs teams of the past five years. At the same time he reckoned he was capable of helping to stop the recent trend of middle-order collapses that limited Australia to five wins from 15 ODIs in 2017.

The omission of Maxwell from the initial squad last week came as a shock to some commentators and it was speculated he would earn a recall when Lynn was ruled out of the series against England because of a calf injury.
