White hopeful of ODI series 'whitewash' against England

Posted By: Staff

London, Sep 12(ANI): Australian all-rounder Cameron White reckons that Australia can finish their Ashes-losing England tour with a flourish by defeating their arch rivals seven-nil in the on-going ODI series.

Australia lost the five-Test campaign 2-1, but they are leading 3-0 in the seven match ODI series.

"At the moment if we keep playing good, consistent cricket, keep bowling and fielding well, there is no reason why not," The Daily Telegraph quoted White, as saying.

"In saying that, winning seven one-dayers against a really good side is a pretty strange thing to happen. But, I am not saying that it can't. We want to keep the momentum going and I don't think we are playing at our total best right now," he added.

White further said that Australian team still has some areas where they needed to improve and also emphasised that they cant write-off the England squad, as they will bounce back at some stage.

"There are still probably some areas that we think we can improve in, so there are things we need to work on to get better for these four games. Then, come four games' time, we are hopefully at our peak," White said.

Meanwhile, Australia captain Ricky Ponting would comeback to join the squad after his post-Ashes break. (ANI)
