Cameron White returns for Northants' Twenty20 campaign

Cameron White

Northants have re-signed Australian all-rounder Cameron White for the forthcoming season's Twenty20 campaign.

White scored 228 runs in eight innings in last season's competition at an average of 57.

His top score was 62 in a disappointing season for the Steelbacks, which ended with just one win.

The 29-year-old plays for Victoria and Melbourne Stars and is also currently contracted to Sunrisers Hyderabad - the successor team to Deccan Chargers.

White made his last Test appearance for Australia in 2008 and played his last one-day international against Bangladesh in 2011.

Northants have not yet signed an overseas player for the new season, although they are interested in the Australian pace bowler Trent Copeland.

A deal for South Africa pace bowler Rory Kleinveldt was withdrawn and chief executive David Smith has admitted that a return by former captain Mike Hussey is unlikely.
