Craig White Profile

An all-rounder who batted right-handed and bowled right-arm fast-medium along with off-break, Craig White made his maiden international appearance for England as early as 1994.

With a muscular shoulder action and reverse swing at deadly place aplenty, White struggled to keep his pace with injuries taking a toll on his body. However, in 2001, he showed his England teammates that he was much more than just a bowler. Batting in extremely hot and humid conditions, White smashed a gritty Test hundred against India. Decent batting performances followed against Australia and the all-rounder became an integral part of the England setup. In 2003, he ripped a rib muscle and that eventually cost him a place in the ICC Cricket World Cup that year. Injuries limited his domestic appearances as well, but in 2004, he returned to captain Yorkshire. The stint didn’t go too well, as Yorkshire slipped to their worst performance in 12 years. Personally too, White played just 7 games.

A year later, an inspired White guided his county back to the Championship fight. Later in 2006, he gave up captaincy. Retirement came in 2008, with more than 12, 000 runs and 395 first-class wickets. White took to coaching and his final assignment was Yorshire’s second XI. In 2012, he relinquished that position as joined Hampshire as their head coach ahead of a new season.
