Australia spinner Jonassen misses the India trip because of injury, Wellington welcome.
December 11 After suffering an injury to her right hamstring during the first Twenty20 International of the five-match series. Australia Spinner Jonassen, an Australian spinner, was ruled out for the balance of the Tour of India on Sunday.
The left-arm spinner has returned to his home in Queensland. And leg-spinner Amanda-Jade Wellington will take his position in Australia’s 15-player team. Wellington is scheduled to fly into India and meet with the touring group on Tuesday, the day before the third Twenty20 International.

On Friday at DY Patil Stadium, during Australia’s dominating nine-wicket victory, Jonassen injured her right hamstring while fielding the ball.
According to the physiotherapist for the Australian national team. Kate Beerworth, “She has since been assessed. And it is apparent that the timeframes required for a return during this series are too short.”
She said Jess would be unavailable for the rest of the series since she would return to Brisbane to finish her rehabilitation.
ODI and T20I series
We do not expect the injury to prevent Australia Spinner Jonassen from participating in the ODI and T20I series. Against Pakistan, which will take place at home in January, and the T20 World Cup. Which will take place in South Africa in February.
Wellington, who was supposed to replace Jonassen, was not selected for the initial squad. Because Australia loaded up on fast bowlers to evaluate their alternatives before the ICC event in South Africa, this decision caused Wellington to be left out of the original group.
Since Australia’s last tour of India in 2018, the 25-year-old has not participated in a Twenty20 International match. But he was on Australia’s squad for the Commonwealth Games in August. She participated in two one-day games during the March 50-over World Cup in New Zealand.
Australia Spinner Jonassen XI
In the meantime, Darcie Brown is in contention to return to Australia Spinner Jonassen XI for the second Twenty20 international that will take place at DY Patil Stadium on Sunday.
Because of illness, the fast bowler, who was 19 years old, did not participate in the tournament’s first game because she could not practice after arriving in India. Brown was put through her paces on a practice wicket immediately after that match and attended the options training session on Saturday.
