Former Australia batsman Cameron White has not been offered a contract with Victoria for next season leaving his Australian domestic career in limbo.

White, 35, played in Victoria’s and Melbourne Renegades’ unprecedented Australian domestic treble this season featuring in both the JLT One-Day Cup and Sheffield Shield titles for Victoria and the BBL title for the Renegades, but he was dropped by both sides during the season.

Both Victoria and the Renegades have confirmed White has not been offered a contract at either domestic or BBL level for the 2019-20 season.

“The list management decision-making process has not been an easy one,” Victoria’s general manager of cricket Shaun Graf said. “Naturally we’ve looked at the depth in our squad, the talented youth emerging and the international availability of our senior players next season. As a result, we’ve had to make a very hard decision on Cameron’s playing tenure with Victoria.”

White is understood to be weighing up his options. A number of BBL clubs, including Perth Scorchers, have spoken to White about the prospect of joining them in a playing and mentoring role next season. It has also been reported that White has held discussions with the Adelaide Strikers about a playing or coaching role.

It appears unlikely he will play First-Class or List A cricket again. He finishes with six Sheffield Shield titles for Victoria, including three as captain, and a one-day title after debuting as an 18-year-old in 2001. He is Victoria’s longest serving captain having led his state in 77 first-class and 77 List A games after first being handed the role as a 20-year-old.

White also played four Tests, 91 ODIs and 47 T20Is matches for Australia. He led Australia in six T20 internationals in 2011 and stood in as captain for one ODI in the same year.
