Burns Burnout!

Incumbent Australian Test opener Joe Burns is suffering from a chronic fatigue disorder.

Burns recently cut short a County Championship stint at Lancashire after just one match. It’s to be hoped that the Queensland right-hander recovers in order to take his place at the top of the order come the Ashes because it just won’t be the same without Burns opening on both sides.

Meanwhile Burns one cap compatriot Chadd Sayers has signed for Gloucestershire after they lost another Ozzie, Dan Worrall to injury!
