Exactly eight years ago, Cameron White scored his maiden ODI hundred, 105 (124), with the help of nine fours & a six against England at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. On the back of White’s century, Australia continued their domination in the ODI series as they defeated England by 6 wickets to gain a 3-0 lead in the series.
Earlier, Andrew Strauss, the then English captain, had won the toss and chose to bat. Strauss led from the front as he scored a half-century in the match. With no one supporting him from the other end, England ended up scoring 228-9 in 50 overs. Having registered bowling figures of 8-0-36-3, Shane Watson was the pick of the Australian bowlers.
In reply, Australia lost Watson in the sixth over. With the help of White’s century and captain Michael Clarke’s half-century, Australia gained a victory with nine balls to spare. White was particular about his shot selection and did not mind taking a risk here or there. A clean striker, as he is known as, it was always a matter of time with White to score his first ODI hundred.
