In Conversation with Cameron White
You’ve been the captain of the Australian International t20 side and now you are the vice captain of the Deccan Chargers. How does the responsibility differ?
I imagine the responsibility will be a lot different. IPL is a lot different when compared to playing Internationals.
When a person goes to a different country, he experiences something like a cultural shock. Have you experienced something like that when you came to India?
I think the whole place is very different. India and Australia are very different countries. So, I guess for someone new to India, it would be a big change coming from another country. But, I love the people and the IPL. I’m here for the fifth edition just like so many others and so, everyone knows what they are in for these days. But as I said, if you are new to India, it would be a little bit of a shock.
Could you tell us about your most cherished moment?
I cherish playing cricket for Australia. The most cherished moment would be getting picked.
What is your favourite city?
Favourite city would be Hyderabad because that’s where the Deccan Chargers home ground is and obviously that’s where we come from so, Hyderabad is definitely the best place.
Do you have an experience you would like to share with us (regarding the city)?
It’s a nice place to go around. It’s our home venue and it’s always nice to be travelling along the road for IPL.
Which is your favourite stadium?
The MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground). It’s my home ground back in Australia.
What is your favourite dish?
I like many dishes. I like most of my food.
Have you tasted the Biryani?
Yeah, Biryani is pretty good. I like Veg. Biryani the most. There are a lot of different styles here but, it’s my favourite.
What is your favourite movie?
There are so many but I think I enjoy watching Blood Diamond. The movie is a bit old now, but I liked it.
Who is your favourite artist?
I don’t generally listen to music.
