The Middlesex management is delighted to have Burns on board and believes the middle-order batsman is capable to play well in English conditions.
Burns, who made his Test debut against India in last winters, is glad to join the English county club and share his thoughts on Twitter.
Excited to join @Middlesex_CCC this season. Going to be a great few months with a fantastic group and looking forward to calling Lords home!
