Jonassen injured her right hamstring while fielding in the opening T20I in Mumbai on Friday, December 9. Upon medical assessment, it was found that Jonassen will likely take a long time to recover and she will not be fit for the rest of the series.
The injury is not expected to sideline her for January’s ODI and T20I series at home against Pakistan, or February’s T20 World Cup in South Africa “Unfortunately Jess sustained a right hamstring strain while fielding during the match on Friday,” Australian Women’s Team Physiotherapist, Kate Beerworth said in a Cricket Australia statement.
“She’s since been assessed and it’s evident that the timeframes required for a return during this series are too short. Jess will be unavailable for the remainder of the series and will return to Brisbane to continue her rehab,” Beerworth further added.
Australia are currently leading the five-match series 1-0, after clinching a thumping nine-wicket victory in the opening T20I. Jonassen bowled two overs in the match conceding just 18 runs without taking any wickets. The second T20I will be played at the same venue on Sunday, December 11.
