Cameron White replaces Chris Lynn in Australia's ODI squad for England series
And then along came Cam White.
Veteran Australia cricketer Cameron White has earned a shock recall to the national side for a five-match Gillette ODI series against England. Steve Smith, the Australian captain, previously stated that Maxwell's training habits was not up to an global standard and contributed to his axing.
"It was no different at the start of this year, I didn't play the first three games even though I was coming off some really good form in the pre-season in the one-day cup, so it's just the landscape of Cricket Australia these days, I understand that and there's no point complaining about it or whingeing, it's just the way it is".
"It's no wonder why he is so good and I'm stoked for him to get back in one day colours".
Now after getting the recall for the national side, a "grateful" White was very surprised when Trevor Hohns called him to deliver the good news. "He's playing very well", said Hohns in a statement released by Cricket Australia.
Lynn injured his calf nearly immediately after being selected for the ODI series, with Maxwell the hot tip to replace him after good form with the bat in the Sheffield Shield and the Big Bash League.
"He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage", he added. 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.
