IPL helped Deccan's White regain form

Sydney, May 27: Australia batsman Cameron White said playing in the IPL 5 for Deccan Chargers has helped him regain his lost form.

White suffered a horrible set back when he was dropped from the Australian limited overs squad due to a poor run during the 2011-12 summer.

His 'wasted' summer not only threatened his international career, but he was axed as Twenty20 captain and was dropped from the team too.

But following his impressive spell with Deccan Chargers, White has found his form back after 18 months. White scored 479 in IPL 5 with an average of 43.55.

"When you're batting, especially in Twenty20 cricket, the best feeling is when you get to a stage where … it's the later overs and you have no fear. You just go out and try and hit every ball for a four or six really," a daily quoted White, as saying.

"Even when I was out of form during the Big Bash that was the one situation I was looking for, when you could get your team over the line and things might change," he added.

Describing his form in the summer as 'waste', White feels in any format a batsman gets better after facing more and more deliveries.

"When I was batting and was in form I just felt 'this is the way it should have been working'; the summer has been such a waste, because as a batsman the more balls you face - in any format - that's when you feel you're getting better, no matter how much time you spend in the nets," he said.
