Jonassen Claims Number One ICC Ranking

20 March 2018

A standout tour of India has seen Brisbane Heat spinner Jess Jonassen rise to the top of the International Cricket Council's One-Day International bowling rankings.

Jonassen took eight wickets from Australia's successful three match ODI series against India to storm to the top of the ICC rankings, with Southern Stars teammate Megan Schutt elevated to second position.

The left-arm tweaker reaffirmed her status as one of the country's dominant all-rounders after helping Australia retain the Women's Ashes series in October and November. 

The Southern Stars will undertake a tri-series T20 tournament with England and India where Jonassesn will be joined by Heat teammates Beth Mooney and Delissa Kimmince in the Australian squad.
