After getting a surprise national call-up, Cameron White admitted this surprise return is his last chance to secure a long-term berth in the ODI set up.

The 34-year old has admitted he is feeling the heat, as he wants to make the most of his shock recall to the national side and thinks the recent low scores have added even more to that pressure.

White opted to play in the Big Bash League on Monday for Melbourne Renegades during the break between the third and fourth ODI. The right-handed batsman had scored 15 not out and 17 in his last two outings in the national colours.

Moreover, the Australian team is on an all-time low in the limited-overs format having lost 10 out of their 11 matches, and the management will be looking forward to finding out the correct combination to go into next year’s 50 over World Cup.

White’s Say-:

“I’m not stupid, I’ve got to make the most of my next opportunity if I get one. That’s where it is. The ball’s in my court; I need to do something. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself, but it’s hard not to. I’m realistic – it’s only going to be a short window to try and do something. I feel under pressure for sure.”

White was promoted up to the number three position in the previous match and believes batting up the order suits him better,

“I feel like No.3 three suits me, it’s a good spot. I’ve batted there for Australia before, made hundreds there before and batted at the top of the order for Victoria as well. I enjoy the ball coming on to the bat early. Adelaide, if I get an opportunity, is as good a place as any to bat. It’s my opportunity at the moment, I’ve got to grab it. Hopefully, I get an opportunity on Friday and make some runs.”
