Former international cricketer Cameron White will continue his rising coaching career as an assistant with the Adelaide Strikers in KFC BBL|10.

White, a playing member with the Strikers in BBL|09, announced his retirement from professional cricket in August to turn his attention to coaching, already involved in the development of Victoria’s under-19 talent.

Part of the experienced 37-year-old’s caper with the Strikers last season involved mentoring, and he relished the stint with a hunger for more.

“I enjoyed my time with the Strikers last season and after making the call to finish up my playing career, I’m really looking forward to this next chapter in cricket,” White said.

“I assisted in some coaching during BBL|09 and it was a buzz then, so I knew when my career finished up that I would keep pursuing it.

“We’ve assembled a very talented squad and I can’t wait to continue working with them this summer.”

White was a mainstay of Australia’s ODI side between 2007 and 2011, hitting two tons and standing in as captain for Michael Clarke on one occasion in 2011.

He was also appointed Victoria’s youngest-ever captain in 2003, with a wealth of knowledge in the game to only benefit the playing group alongside Head Coach Jason Gillespie and Senior Assistant Joe Dawes.

“Cameron was obviously a fantastic player all through his career and his understanding of the game makes him a great addition to our coaching staff,” Gillespie said.

“He showed that with the team already last year and they really took to him and picked his brain, so we’re really looking forward to welcoming him back in this role ahead of BBL|10.”
