Bio

Joe Burns achieved every Australian cricketer's dream during 2014-15 when he wore the Baggy Green for the first time in Australia's Boxing Day Test against India.

Since then Burnsy has gone onto forge a solid international career where he has been an important member at the top of Australia's Test order.

Burns' 2015-16 summer featured three Test centuries, with his first coming in front of his home crowd at the Gabba.

Outside of cricket he enjoys skateboarding, surfing, playing Fifa and is a big Manchester United fan.
