Cameron White

Cameron White Cameron Leon White (born 18 August 1983) is an Australian cricketer and former Australian Twenty20 and Victorian Bushrangers captain. A powerful middle order batsman and right-arm leg-spin bowler, White made his first-class cricket debut as a teenager in the 2000–01 season for the Victorian Bushrangers as a bowling all-rounder. Early comparisons with Victoria teammate Shane Warne faded as White took on a role closer to that of Andrew Symonds, a batsman who bowled occasionally, and bats aggressively with flat sixes around his leg side.

In 2003–04, he became Victoria's youngest ever captain at the age of 20 when he took over leadership of their one-day side, and the first-class captaincy followed the season after. International recognition came for the first time in 2005, but White found himself in and out of the side as the selectors and national captain Ricky Ponting looked for White to improve his bowling to play as a front-line spinner. Two successful winters with English county side Somerset helped to propel White back into the selectors' minds. White had a short Test career playing four Test matches in 2008.

His tenure as T20 captain ended with the 2012 series against India where he was dropped following poor form in the Big Bash League. He was succeeded by Melbourne Stars teammate George Bailey. His nickname of "Bear" is due to his purported resemblance to the polar bear mascot of Bundaberg Rum. Provided by Wikipedia
