Over the years, Whiteman's name has done the rounds with wicketkeeper slot being in jeopardy after Brad Haddin's retirement. The volatile Matthew Wade did decently while the likes of Peter Nevill was also tried at before the stunning recall of Tim Paine for the 2017-18 Ashes series. Amidst all this, young Whiteman continues to be in the radar due to his effective glovework and attacking batsmanship.
Finger injuries have hit Whiteman a couple of times, most recently in mid-2017 when he injured his finger. It has proved to be a serious injury and has forced him to miss a large chunk of the Sheffield Shield season. A comeback time frame hasn't been mentioned due to the seriousness of the injury but one hopes that the talented bloke returns fit and healthy at the earliest. Being a southpaw also gives him an advantage over the young prospects eyeing the wicketkeeper batsman slot. Whiteman has been a reliable batsman for his State side and is expected to be blooded into international white-ball cricket sooner than later.
