Kerry O’Keeffe says he doesn’t see a “long-term future” for Joe Burns in Test Cricket as the opener after the Australian flopped the bat again on Monday

The Queenslander was fighting for his career on day three of the Boxing Day Test when he was caught bowling by Umesh Yadav for four years

The single-digit score is Burns’ eighth first-class cricket place since the start of the season, in which he currently only has 10 points42

O’Keeffe said while playing on Fox Cricket that Burns’ technique cannot withstand the rigors of opening the eyelash when the moving ball gives him great difficulty

When David Warner was nearing his return to fitness, O’Keeffe said he couldn’t see Burns keep his opening spot for Australia and collapsed as to why

“I wouldn’t (stick with Burns) because I think it’s a flawed technique and it’s so fake that I don’t think he can get out of it,” O’Keeffe said in a comment

“He moves his forefoot and at the same time picks up his club so that his weight is trapped in the center of his torso He plays forward to balls climbing onto his racket”

O’Keeffe added that Burns is a good spin player and may have more success6, but not above

“His weight is wrong, he is neither forward nor backward, he is unbalanced and that’s basically because of his ingestion, and you can’t play the moving ball in motion,” he said as he broke off Burns’ last discharge

“I don’t know if you can compete against the better bowling with this defense technique. It’s just my opinion and I’ve been wrong several times”

Meanwhile, former Australian opener Chris Rogers talked about Burns’ mindset and how the 31-year-old has apparently lost faith in the crease

“I think ‘messed up’ is probably the best way to describe Joe Burns’ method and mindset there,” Rogers said of SEN

“He just saw everything at sea, right? He never looked really comfortable at any point”


Burns made an unbeaten half century in Adelaide, despite the fact that it came in a simple chase of less than 100 runs after India was rolled for 36

Outside of that half century, Burns has produced four top notch ducks since October and done more than 15 runs twice

Warner is almost certain he will return to Australia’s top spot on the third test missed due to biosecurity measures in Melbourne.He is also battling a groin strain he suffered during the ODI series despite being on the nets returned in Melbourne and appeared to be unhindered
