Adam Zampa Career

Australian Cricketer Adam Zampa began his career at a young age, showcasing his leg-spin bowling. He was selected for the Australian squad for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2010 which went on to win the tournament. His first-class career in Australia was slow, but he moved to South Australia in 2013 and impressed in domestic tournaments. He debuted in the Big Bash League in 2016 and became a key player for the Melbourne Stars, winning the BBL title. Zampa made his international debut in 2016, making his ODI and T20I debuts against South Africa. He was a key player in the Australian squad that won the 2019 World Cup and T20 World in 2021. He played a crucial role in Australia's 2023 ICC World Cup campaign, taking 23 wickets from 11 matches, tying Murali's record for the most wickets taken by an Australian spinner at a World Cup.


Adam Zampa Domestic Career

When Zampa was in school, he used to bowl medium pace but after the release of Cricket Australia's new guidelines for Under-14 matches, in which they had put restrictions on the speed of fast bowlers, he started bowling leg spin. In 2009, he was selected in the Under-19 team and represented Australia in their successful 2010 Under-19 World Cup campaign.


With his old-school technique of tossing the ball above the eye-line, he was highly successful in his youth career. As a result, New South Wales signed him in 2010 but he didn't get a chance to play instantly as they already had a couple of successful spinners. Zampa made his first class debut in the 2012-13 season of Sheffield Shield against Queensland and took 5 wickets in the match. In 2013, he was signed by South Australia and took his first hat-trick in a match of 2014-15 Matador BBQs One-Day Cup against Western Australia.
