Adam Zampa is an Australian cricketer, who plays the shorter formats of the game. He represents the team of South Australia and Melbourne Stars at domestic level. Zampa is a leg-break bowler and an occasional right-handed lower-order batsman. He was born in the region of Shellharbour of New South Wales in 1992 and began his cricket at a very young age. At the initial stage of his career, he used to bowl as a medium pacer. However gradually, he has transformed his bowling style due to some restriction for pace bowler in under-14 matches.
At that time, Zampa got inspired by the Australian spinner Shane Warne and changed his bowling style to leg spin. He has played in Australian Under-19 team in 2009 and gave a perfect impact to be selected for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2010. From 2010 to 2013 Zampa used to represent the New South Wales team in domestic cricket. After this, he has played for South Australia from 2013 to 2016 and got drafted into international cricket in 2016.
The unique technique of tossing the ball above the eye-line and wily deception gave him impeccable success in his domestic career. He made his debut in the international cricket through an ODI match and played several matches in the shorter format of the game. His undeniable expertise helped him to enter in the Australian squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. This 27 years old Australian spinner had made his IPL debut in 2016 with Rising Pune Supergiants.
