The National Selection Panel (NSP) has named a 15-player squad that will compete at the ICC World T20 in the West Indies in November.
The World T20 squad will assemble in Malaysia following the conclusion of the ODI series, with three Twenty20’s scheduled against the same opposition before the team travels directly to the West Indies.
Jess Jonassen is one of two additions to the side that claimed a 3-0 T20I series whitewash against New Zealand on Friday.
“Jess is recovering well from her knee injury and will join the squad in Malaysia, with the aim to have her playing in the two warm-up matches in the West Indies.
“The three ODIs are crucial in making sure we stay at the top of the ICC Women’s Championship table with an eye on the next 50-over World Cup, and a successful series will give the group great confidence heading to the West Indies.
“This is an exciting group of players who’ve played some very good cricket in the T20 format in particular, over the last six months, and with injection of some youth we believe this group has the right attributes to have a successful World Cup.”
