Colombo, Aug 4: Australian Twenty20 captain Cameron White believes that he still has a future in the national one-day team despite being dumped from the side for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
White is in Sri Lanka preparing for the first of two Twenty20 matches at Kandy's Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.
When asked if he had spoken with selectors about the reasons for his axing, White said: "I've discussed it very briefly".
"Not in depth. It's pretty simple. All you have to do is score runs. Of course I want to get back in and I think I can, yeah. With the feedback so far, I'm hopeful that I can," he added.
White is also hoping to deliver his first message to selectors by leading from the front.
"First tour [as captain] and it's something I've really been looking forward to as well. It's not just the two games, it's being involved at training and you have more to do with it don't you? So, you have more involvement," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted White, as saying.
"It's something I've enjoyed and I'm just looking forward to playing now mate, training's training, but it'll be good to get out in the matches," he added. (ANI)
