Australia’s leg spinner Adam Zampa on Thursday credited Captain Aaron Finch for his success in limited overs format. Adam Zampa also said that the freedom by Aaron Finch has helped him in being more expressive in his bowling. The leg-spinner has climbed up to the fourth spot on the ICC Men’s T20I bowling rankings. “Being led well as a leg-spinner is everything. You can be bowling the absolute house down in the nets and feel like you’re bowling well in the game but if you’ve got a leader who is controlling, wants you to bowl a certain way every single ball every single time, it’s just added pressure on you,” Zampa told SEN, as reported by cricket.com.au.
“With Finchy in particular, he’s very communicative when I’ll be bowling each game and who he wants me to bowl to but once I get out there he’s just ‘go with your gut, mate’. It works really, me and Finchy together,” he added.
Adam Zampa has managed to scalped 67 wickets in limited overs format in the last two years. During this period he was also dropped in the 2019 World Cup but he made his way back into the team & now has secured his place as the frontline spinner.
“As soon as you start worrying about yourself and worrying whether you’re going to be on (the T20 World Cup tour) it’s not the greatest of attitudes to have,” Zampa said.
“I see myself on that tour. I see myself as a massive leader in this side too, so I’m going to try and do everything possible to try and get us playing the best cricket possible so that we can have success at the tournament and not just be there,” he added.
Australia will now face New Zealand in the upcoming five match T20I series starting from February 22.
