Jess Jonassen (T20 cricket) was one of three Queensland-born players on the 15-strong squad that took home the inaugural women’s cricket gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
The versatile left-arm spinner has been a member of the national team since 2012 and has appeared in over 100 T20 internationals, taking more than 90 wickets. She also has played in four Women’s T20 World Cup-winning teams for Australia. Jess has also played in more than 90 one-day internationals and has captured more than 100 wickets in that form of the game.
Jess started playing cricket when she was 10, initially at school and then in boys’ teams with Rockhampton Brothers as there weren’t any girls teams at the time.
In domestic cricket, Jonassen is a key part of the Brisbane Heat and Queensland teams, captaining both sides.
