Cricket Australia said on Thursday that veteran batsman Cameron White will replace the injured Chris Lynn in Australia’s one-day international team for a five-match series against England.

The 34-year-old White has not represented Australia in any format since 2015.

The right-hander has been strong in Twenty20 form with 285 runs at an average of 142.5 and a strike-rate of 115.85 for the Melbourne Renegades in the current Big Bash League.

Australia plays England on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to open the series.
