HYDERABAD: Cricket Australiahas announced that Cameron White would Bryce McGain, for the rest of the tour to India. Andrew Hilditch, selection panel chairman, currently with the team here, announced this on Saturday.
“We feel that Cameron’s right-arm, leg spin and experience in Indian conditions, where he has just returned after captaining the Australia ‘A’ one-day team to a tournament victory, is the correct option and will provide a good balance to our slow bowling attack,” said a statement by the media manager Mathew Slade here.
White will meet the Australian squad in Bangalore on Monday ahead of the first Test starting on Thursday. — Principal Correspondent
