Jessica Jonassen

Queensland's leading allrounder across all formats and rapidly evolving into a key player for the Southern Stars national team. Originally from Rockhampton, she made her debut for the Fire whilst still at high school and was a Shooting Stars national development squad player asa 15-year-old.  A left-handed batter with the ability to build an innings or to finish one, her left arm spin is vital to the Queensland Fire and Brisbane Heat. Since making her debut for the Southern Stars in early 2012 Jonassen has cemented a regular place in the side. She made an impression in her first three months of international cricket, claiming five ODI wickets and four wickets in the T20 format, which she backed up with decent spells at the crease, despite batting down the order. Later that year she continued her strong international showing at the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in 2012. After a solid tournament of economical bowling, she claimed career-best T20 figures in the final, taking 3-25 in her side’s victory over England. A knee injury saw miss the World Cup, but she rebounded strongly during the Ashes series against England. She was a key figure in the Fire's breakthrough WT20 Final victory.
