Andrew Roland White is a cricketer from Ireland who is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm off spin bowler.

In 1999 and 2000, White was a member of the Irish Under-19s team. In 2001 and 2005, he has played for Ireland in the ICC trophy and in 2005 he assisted the Ireland team to the final. He has also played for Northamptonshire from 2005. In spite of his contract with Northamptonshire, he has still not established himself.

During the 2007 Cricket World Cup played in the West Indies, he was a member of the team which reached the Super 8 stage. During this cup he played in eight out of the nine matches but his top score was simply 38.

White is regarded as a hard-hitting all rounder who impressed the observers during his debut when he scored 152 not out against the Netherlands. Against England he batted at the No.7 position in the debut match and scored 40 runs from 43 deliveries. In 2004 when the Irish embarrassed the West Indies, White had scored the winning runs.

The ability to bowl at good areas and providing support to the bowling line up with his off breaks gives Andrew White an extra edge to perform at the highest level. He is capable of hitting the ball hard and long and can be shuffled anywhere in the batting line up as per the situation of the game. In the 53 ODIs he has played, White has scored 727 runs at an average of 18.64 which is on the lower side compared to his abilities. While bowling, he took 25 wickets with best figures of 4 for 44 runs.

White has taken a job in Grosvenor Grammar School along with Kyle McCallan an Irish cricketer.
