Joe Burns burst on to the scene with 140 on Sheffield Shield debut late in the 2010-11 season, the third highest score on debut by a Queensland player. He became a fixture in the Shield-winning state team the following summer, when he scored 781 runs at 41.10. Named the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year in 2013, Burns enjoyed a move up the order to become an opener for Queensland. In 2014-15 he was Queensland's leading Shield run scorer with 793 and his Test debut came in the same summer. He played his initial ODIs in the British Isles following the 2015 Ashes.
Outside of cricket he enjoys skateboarding, surfing, playing Fifa and is a big Manchester United fan.
