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.

As Cricket Australia put it, "Jonassen was pinned lbw by England opening bowler Katherine Brunt on 99 in excruciating fashion, missing an inswinger from the right-armer that only just pitched and hit in line with leg-stump."

The Aussies declared at 274/9. The English are currently at 68/4.
