Joe Burns ‘almost untenable’ for Australia’s first Test
Australian cricket great Mark Taylor has declared “it’s almost untenable” to select Joe Burns for Australia’s first Test against India.

“The dismissals are of concern. The other thing that concerns me is that every player – me included – have these runs of outs, and there’s no doubt you lose confidence.
“All of a sudden, making runs seems really difficult.”
