Australian spinner –Adam Zampa, on Thursday, said that the national selectors’ decision to drop him out from the squad in India has played a key role in his game, terming it as a wake-up call.
The 25-year-old had a disastrous tour of India as the spinner managed to pick up only four wickets in a couple of matches conceding runs at nearly seven per over. Now, Zampa wants to cement his place into the national side with the upcoming England series at home after working on his game.
Adam Zampa told the official website of Cricket Australia (CA), “It was definitely a wake-up call. I’m really keen to get out there and show that I’ve been working on a few things. My variations and things like that, I feel like they’re coming out well. I really want to cement my spot in this team. I feel like I’m on edge a little bit at the moment and I think that’s probably a good thing.”
The spinner further said on the same, “I think I perform at my best when there’s guys trailing me, like Ash, who’s bowling really well with the white ball. I think if anything, that’ll really help me.”
He also said that he has the experience of being successful in all conditions after playing a lot of cricket at domestic level. Zampa concluded by saying, “I’ve played a lot of Big Bash (games) on pretty flat surfaces, like the MCG and Adelaide Oval when I was at the Strikers. So I do back myself in any conditions. But the feedback is, and I’m used to it now, that if conditions suit I’ll play and if not then I won’t.”
