Update: Joe Burns
Joe Burns returns to Australia
Lancashire Cricket can confirm that overseas batsman Joe Burns has returned to Australia due to personal reasons, and will now not be available for the Club’s 2019 campaign.
Burns, 29, made one appearance for Lancashire as the Red Rose beat Northamptonshire by 10 wickets in the Specsavers County Championship at Emirates Old Trafford last week.
Jake Lehmann, who played in four matches of Lancashire’s Royal London One-Day Cup campaign, replaces Burns in the Lancashire squad for this week’s Specsavers County Championship fixture against Worcestershire, starting later today at Emirates Old Trafford.
Lancashire Cricket wishes Joe all the best, and it would be appreciated if his privacy is respected during this time.
