White to move elsewhere
Rob White will be allowed to leave Northamptonshire at the end of the season after the county announced that his contract will not be renewed.
After making his way through the ranks at Northants, White made his debut in 2000 and, two years later, struck 277 not out - the highest maiden first-class century in the history of English cricket.
White, however, has since been more prominent in limited-overs cricket and is the club’s most prolific Twenty20 batsman having struck 1,189 runs.
Interim head coach David Ripley said: “It is very disappointing for all concerned to lose Rob, a local lad who came through the youth system here at Northants.
“He has made match-winning contributions in all formats of the game during his time at the club.
“It has been a frustrating time for Rob this season with limited first-team opportunities, so rather than hang on for a chance that may not come, we feel it’s in Rob’s best interests to start to look for other opportunities now.
“We wish Rob all the very best in his future career and thank him for his significant contribution to Northants cricket.”
