Tony White was a middle-order batsman and off-spinner who played for Barbados from 1958 to 1965-66. He toured England with the West Indian team in 1963 without playing in the Tests, joining the side midway through the tour as a back-up for the injured Willie Rodriguez.
He played his two Tests against the Australians in 1964-65. In the First Test he top-scored with 57 not out in the first innings, after coming in with the score at 149 for 6 and taking the total to 239 all out. He also took 3 cheap wickets in a 179-run victory. But he failed to take a wicket off 52 overs in the drawn Second Test, scored only 7 and 4, and was replaced by Seymour Nurse for the Third Test.
His best bowling figures were 6 for 80 against Trinidad in 1960-61. His highest score was 75 against British Guiana in the final of the Pentangular Tournament in 1961-62, when he also scored 54 in the second innings and took 4 wickets in a losing cause.
