Jonas withdrawn from New Zealand Under 19 squad | Irwin named as replacement

Fran Jonas has been withdrawn from the New Zealand Under 19 squad after sustaining a calf injury in the lead up to yesterday’s World Cup opener against Indonesia.

An independent MRI confirmed Jonas had sustained a grade two soleus strain and a grade one gastrocnemius strain which will require two weeks of rehabilitation.

Auckland’s Kate Irwin has been called into the squad to replace Jonas and will fly out to join the squad in South Africa today.

The two-week rehabilitation timeframe means that Jonas will still be available for WHITE FERNS selection for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup starting on February 11.
