Jess Jonassen

Consistently ranked as Australia’s best bowler in the T20 format, slow left-arm orthodox bowler Jess Jonassen trails only Ellyse Perry and Megan Schutt as her team’s most prolific wicket-taker.

One of three Queensland-born players in the 15-strong Birmingham squad, Jess has appeared in over 80 T20 internationals, taking more than 70 wickets with a best of 5-12. She also has played in four Women’s T20 World Cup-winning teams for Australia. 

Jess has also played in more than 130 one-day internationals for Australia and was the fourth Australian player to capture more than 100 wickets in that form of the game. 

Jess started playing cricket when she was 10, initially at school and then in the boys’ teams with Rockhampton Brothers as there weren’t any girls teams at the time.

She has battled significant injuries during her career, undergoing four knee operations by the end of the 2018 season and missed most of the 2020/21 season with stress fracture of the shin.

Jess became engaged to partner Sarah Gooderham in February 2018 and they had planned to marry in May 2020 but called it off due to COVID. An avid Western Bulldogs supporter, she has a bulldog named Alfie.
