Bio

Compact opening batsman Jonathan Wells got his first taste of first-class cricket in 2008-09, making scores of 98 against Victoria and 85 against New South Wales.

But he failed to secure a permanent place in a Tasmania batting order brimming with talent and was often forced to ply his trade in second XI and grade cricket.

His grade form for Clarence in 2013-14 earned him the Player of the Year Award while he also became a regular member of the Hobart Hurricanes side in the Big Bash League, batting in the middle order.

Wells was cut from Tasmania’s list at the end of the 2014-15 season and then moved to WA in a bid to reboot his career.

He made two Sheffield Shield appearances in 2015-16 and secured a full contract for the 2016-17 campaign.
