Australian cricketer, Joe Burns is all set to replace injured Shaun Marsh who has been sent home for rehabilitation for Australia's upcoming UAE tour against Pakistan for two Test matches.

Glamorgan will be announcing Joe Burns as the replacement for injured Shaun Marsh for their upcoming T20 matches as the left-hand batsman has been ruled out of the T20 blast over the shoulder injury.

Joe Burns can be available for only a few games for Glamorgan as he will take part in Queensland's JLT One-Day Cup that suggests that the player won't play the final game if Glamorgan qualifies.

Joe Burns has also a great chance to be in Australia's Test squad as the player has already played 14 Test matches and scored more than 900 runs for Australia.

Last summer, Joe Burns enjoyed his T20 stint with Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League. He even played some of the exciting knocks for the team with the likes of Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn.

Earlier, Burns was also overlooked for a Cricket Australia contract in April. Joe Burns will need to undergo a lot of difficult challenges under the new head coach Justin Langer where he will have something different in mind over the selection of the team.
