Biography

The talented left-hander began making great strides at the top of the order for Surrey after being handed a debut in 2011. After a brief dalliance with the Hampshire Second XI, Burns was part of a young group of players to be handed a chance at the Kia Oval. In his first full season he averaged nearly 50 in Division One, and backed that up the following year despite relegation.
