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. 

Burnsy shone on the international stage when given his opportunity, smashing back-to-back 50s in his second Test in Sydney. 

The call-up was just reward for years of hard work that also saw Burns awarded Queensland's Sheffield Shield Player of the Year last season. 

He will be looking to consolidate his form with another massive season in the KFC T20 Big Bash League with the Brisbane Heat where he is a foundation member of the club. Joe grew up in Brisbane and attended Nudgee College. 

Burnsy will be busy jetting around the world during the off-season where he will play County cricket for Middlesex in London before joining the Australia A team for a tour of India. 

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

Burnsy recently completed a Business Degree at QUT and can be followed on twitter @joeburns62 and Instargram @burnsjoe62.

A very good batsman who oozes class. We're excited to see him at the top of the order again. Daniel Vettori
