Burton, who bats left handed, has 5234 First-class runs at 28.3, including nine centuries and 26 half centuries.


His right arm wrist spin has accounted for 113 victims at 32.5 in 106 matches in a career that began in 2001 and has so far covered four teams - North West, Border, Warriors and South Western Districts.
