Burns Out Of Sixers Clash

18 January 2018

Replaced By Gannon

Cameron Gannon will replace Joe Burns in the Brisbane Heat squad for tonight’s important KFC Big Bash League match against the Sydney Sixers at the SCG.

Burns fell awkwardly while doing fielding training yesterday at the venue and scans this morning revealed he has a torn adductor tendon.

Heat physiotherapist Martin Love said a return date for the in-form batsman would be determined in due course but that he was unlikely to be available for the rest of the BBL.

“The medical and high performance staff will consult on a recovery schedule for him as soon possible and we will put the usual rehabilitation plans in place around that,’’ he said.

The revised squad for tonight is:


KFC Big Bash League

Brisbane Heat v Sydney Sixers, SCG

Tonight, 6.40pm Qld time
