ODI and T20I debut for Erin Burns in a week’s time

Allrounder Erin Burns made a subsequent universal introduction over the course of about seven days when she included for Australia in the opening T20 of the three-game series against the West Indies on Saturday. New South Wales allrounder Burns was presented T20 top No.52 by Sydney Sixer’s player and teammate Alyssa Healy in front of play in Barbados and assumed a job in helping Australia to a six-wicket triumph.

The undefeated half-century of Meg Lanning indicated that Burns had no opportunity to shine with the bat, but the 31-year-old made a wonderful piece of playing to reject Stacy-Ann King with a straight shot running out. After more than a century of plying her trade across the nation at the state level, Burns was on her first Australian trip and was a late call-up to the Australian XI last Sunday for the second ODI against the West Indies in Antigua. A New South Wales local, the turn bowling allrounder was not able to break into a solid Breakers line-up so made the transition to Tasmania when the group was acquainted with the Women’s National Cricket League in 2009.

She moved to the ACT Meteors in 2016-17 – a change that coincided with a switch from the Hurricanes to the Sixers in the Rebel WBBL – while she finished the circle previously this year, gaining her first professional agreement with the NSW Breakers.

Saturday’s (September 14) game was Australia’s recent move as they ramp up their plans for the 2020 T20 World Cup on home soil next February and March, with this series being essential to their preparing and planning against the fourth-ranked West Indies.

“It’s going to be on us before we know it,” Jess Jonassen, Australia allrounder, said on match eve of the 2020 tournament.
“Every game leading into that is going to be vital.
“I’m sure anyone who gets an opportunity, not only in this series but the Sri Lanka series coming up (at home) as well will do the job really well.
“We’ve played a lot of cricket recently, the 50-over games were a bit of a slog out there at times so to come to T20 format off the back of some good performances in (the ODIs), everyone is looking forward to getting out there among the hustle and bustle of T20 cricket.”
