The Team announced this morning contains four Heat players, including wicket-keeper Georgia Redmayne, who is set to make her return from a hamstring injury on Wednesday in Adelaide when Brisbane takes on the Hobart Hurricanes in the Eliminator Final.
As well as Jonassen, who took 20 wickets in the regular season, and Redmayne (a League-leading 11 dismissals as well as 333 runs), Heat international star Amelia Kerr and pace bowler Nicola Hancock were also named in the Team.
Kerr, who claimed three player of the match awards, took 19 wickets and scored 243 runs while Hancock finished with a career-high 22 wickets for the tournament.
If the Heat win on Wednesday, they will back up the next day to play the Adelaide Strikers in the Challenger Final for the right to take on the top-placed Sydney Sixers in the Final in Sydney on Saturday.
The Heat finished third yesterday, with a No-Result against the Melbourne Stars meaning that their final finishing spot depended on the results of the final game between Adelaide and the Sydney Thunder.
It is the fifth season in a row that the Heat has made the Finals.
Brisbane will regroup in Adelaide later today to prepare for Wednesday’s match.
