“I’ve definitely finished up playing, that’s for sure,” White, who turned 37 this week, told cricket.com.au.
“To be totally honest, I’m pretty content. I think my time is definitely up, I’ve had enough from a playing point of view and I’m ready to focus on coaching.”
“I’m just keen to get involved in it (coaching) and give it a go,” said White, who is currently mentoring Victoria’s Under-19 prospects via Zoom.
“I’ve enjoyed the bits and pieces I’ve done so far. Part of my role with the (Adelaide) Strikers last year involved coaching.”
He made his first-class debut as a teenager in 2000-01 for Victorian Bushrangers as an all-rounder. He was also the skipper of Australian T20 and Victorian Bushrangers.
The player only featured in 4 test matches and smashed 146 runs at an average of 29.2. Stepping in ODIs from 2005 against World XI, he has a total of 2072 runs in 91 matches. Whereas averaging 32.8 at a strike rate of 133.0, Cameron has 94 runs in a total of 47 matches. The Aussie was also part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) from 2008 to 2013.
