Australia batsman Joe Burns has signed up with Lanchashire for 10 County Championship matches in the 2019 season. Lanchashire, who finished second last in 2018, have been relegated to Division Two for the next season.
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to play for the Red Rose next year,” Burns said.
Burns, who has featured in 14 Test matches for Australia, played for Glamorgan in the 2018 T20 Blast, and has previously featured for Leicestershire and Middlesex counties too.
Lancashire director of cricket Paul Allott told the club website: “With the Indian Premier League and World Cup next year, it is not easy to find quality players who are available for the majority of the season, so we’re delighted to have signed Joe.”
