After 12 years, the Delhi Capitals star was omitted from the Australia squad

Jess Jonassen, who is a stalwart of the Australian cricket team and the Delhi Capitals team in the WPL 2024, finds herself at a crossroads after being omitted from the national squad for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. This surprising decision comes despite her impressive record as Australia’s most prolific T20I spinner and a key contributor to numerous championship wins.
While Jonassen’s future with the national team remains uncertain, her absence also raises questions about her role with the Delhi Capitals in the ongoing Women’s Premier League season in 2024.
Jonassen’s international career has seen a significant shift. After being a mainstay in the Australian team for over a decade, she has recently found herself out of favor, missing not only the Bangladesh tour but also the previous ODI series against the West Indies and carrying drinks throughout the South Africa series.
This unexpected turn of events comes as the team prioritizes other options, including the emergence of all-rounder Ash Gardner as a potent bowling force.
