Australia opener Joe Burns diagnosed with fatigue illness

Australia batsman Joe Burns has been diagnosed with a fatigue illness after making an abrupt return home from English country cricket last month.

The 29-year-old, who scored 180 in Australia’s last Test against Sri Lanka in February, left Lancashire for “personal reasons” after making just one appearance for the club.

Queensland Cricket confirmed he has undergone tests since returning to Australia and has been diagnosed with a “protracted post-infectious fatigue disorder dating back to an October 2018 viral infection”.
