Brisbane Heat name test dismisses Joe Burns in squad for Sydney Sixers clash at Gabba

Must read


Joe Burns could be set to make a Big Bash League return tomorrow after being named to the 19-man Brisbane Heat squad for their clash with the Sydney Sixers at Gabba.

Burns was free to return to the BBL when he was not named to Australia’s 18-man squad for the last two tests against India.

A decision on whether the Queenslander will play their first BBL game since the summer of 2019-2020 is now on the verge of being made when the Heat name their 13-man squad ahead of the bat flip.

Star Heat batsman Jimmy Peirson has said a BBL comeback will give Burns a massive boost.

“It’s probably the best thing for him to come in and play T20 cricket,” said Peirson.

“Disappointing news to see him leave the test team. He is a fantastic player.

“He’ll be back, bigger and stronger, and (I) can’t wait to catch up with him.”
