Victoria batsman Cameron White has been recalled to the Australian One-Day International squad for the upcoming five-match series against England.

White, who last featured for Australia in January 2015 has been named as a replacement for hard-hitting batsman Chris Lynn after the latter suffered a calf injury that has ruled him out of the series.

The 34-year-old White has featured in 88 ODIs in which he scored 2037 runs at an average of 34.52 and has been in outstanding form in the ongoing Big Bash League in which he has scored 79*, 51, 3, 49*, 35* and 68* in six games.

Chief selector Trevor Hohns had high praises for White and insisted that his present form has earned him the recall.

"Cameron’s in very good form, as his figures demonstrate. He’s playing very well," said Hohns in a statement released by Cricket Australia.

"He’s one of the leading run-scorers in this season’s BBL, he’s experienced, he’s a very smart cricketer and he’s a good fielder. He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage."

The five-game ODI series will be played between 14th and 28th January with Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth being the venues.
