Burns, who made her One-Day and T20 International debut for Australia in September, has been an integral member of the Sixers side that has made the last two Women’s Big Bash Finals and claimed the title in WBBL|03.
Reaching last season’s Final would not have been possible without her remarkable full-stretch boundary save on the last ball of the semi-final against the Melbourne Renegades, leading to a dramatic run out that forced the match to a Super Over.
Burns said she was super excited to resign with the magenta.
“I’m pretty happy with how it’s been going over the last couple of years and it’s obviously an amazing group to be a part of,” Burns said on Wednesday.
“I’ve been really happy with the fit in the club and I’ve really enjoyed my cricket over the last couple of years.”
“Being a native to Sydney, it kind of makes sense as well, it makes it easier from a work perspective as well. (I've) been loving it here the last couple of years and really excited for the next couple.”
The Sixers travel to Perth on Thursday for their next two matches of the WBBL against the Melbourne Renegades and Stars at the WACA Ground.
