Former Australian captain Cameron White will join the Sydney Sixers as an assistant coach for the upcoming Big Bash League season.

White will depart his post at the Adelaide Strikers in a move to New South Wales, linking up with the three-time champions under the watch of senior coach Greg Shipperd.

The sixers confirmed White's appointment on Wednesday, with the 38-year-old bringing with him a decorated cricket career across all three formats.

The Victorian great expressed his excitement in joining the Sydney franchise for the upcoming season.

“I’m obviously very excited by the move and looking forward to working with the master coach,” White said.

“It’s been a little while since we worked together going back to my Victorian state days in a player/coach relationship.

“This is obviously newer with Shippy the coach and me as his assistant, but we know each other well and we have similar views on the game.

“The one constant is I am still looking to learn as much as I can from him.

“The Sixers have a very strong squad, with some real experience and some great players who have been very successful over recent few years,” he said.

“The squad looks strong again for this season. The depth of talent in NSW is always significant and this squad reflects that.”

The sixers have seen assistant Gavan Twining depart for a head coaching role with the NSW Breakers, with Shipperd now working through planning with his new-look coaching cohort.

White has joined Andre Adams as an assistant coach at the Sixers for their BBL|12 campaign, which will begin against the Adelaide Strikers on December 14 at Adelaide Oval.
