Giles William White (born March 23, 1972), is a former English cricketer and now cricket coach of Hampshire County Cricket Club. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-handed leg-break bowler, as well as being an occasional wicketkeeper.
He started his first-class career at Somerset, however, he is more noted for his career at Hampshire, where he played for eight years.
Though he started his career as early as 1989 with Devon, where he played in the Minor Counties Championship, even making a Finals appearance in his final year for the county in 1992, and making his first-class debut against the touring Sri Lankans in 1991, which the tourists won despite a double century from Jimmy Cook. His first foray into the County Championship came in 1994, where he played for Hampshire until 2002, even sticking with the team beyond their year-long excursion into the Second Division in 2001.
Having played extensively through the beginning of the 2002 season, White didn't play a single game from August onwards, choosing to hang up his gloves, and leaving the team along with Jason Laney, James Schofield and Irfan Shah.
