Aussie Jess Jonassen fell one short of becoming the 12th debutante to score a century during the second day of the only Women's Ashes Test between England and Australia at Canterbury. In the 138th Women's Test match, Jonassen played a brilliant knock, scoring 99 off 197 balls.
The 22-year-old Queenslander, Jonassen became the third woman to be dismissed for 99 in a Test.
The Aussies declared at 274/9. The English are currently at 68/4.
Here is what the Twitter chatter says:
Gutting for Jess Jonassen to get out on 99. Deserved a hundred. Job on here for England to get near that first innings total. #WomensAshes— Flat Track Bully (@FTB_cricket) August 12, 2015
Really have to feel for Jess Jonassen out lbw for 99 on her Test debut.— Richard Hoiles (@RichardHoiles) August 12, 2015
Feeling a little sad for Jess Jonassen, even if she is an Aussie, harsh being out on 99 on your debut #ashes— Simon Reid (@Reidyboy30) August 12, 2015
It's not often I groan with disappointment when the England girls bowl an Aussie out but poor old Jess Jonassen was on 99! #WomensAshes— Sports Liberated (@SportsLiberated) August 12, 2015
Oh no, Jess Jonassen falls leg before for 99 (would have missed leg, for mine). All the same, a wonderful hand. #womensashes— Adam Collins (@collinsadam) August 12, 2015
No! Jonassen falls on 99 lbw to Brunt. Lanning declares. Poor Jess. Brilliant innings. Aus 274-9. #WomensAshes— Melinda Farrell (@melindafarrell) August 12, 2015
