Adam Zampa Has Had A Good Run For A Couple Of Years: Sridharan Sriram
Sridharan Sriram, also a former Indian cricketer, works for Australian Cricket and is a member of their coaching staff. During an interview with cricketnext.com, he elaborated how Adam Zampa has improved his bowling skills in recent years.
“He (Adam Zampa) has had a good run for a couple of years, no doubt about it. What has changed is that technically, he is a lot more solid with his action, gives a lot more revs on the ball, his confidence level is high, his planning has been very good.
“He is very meticulous, sits down for every game and knows exactly what every opposition batter does, knows what line to bowl, the angle, whether he sweeps fine, sweeps square, slog sweeps, attention to detail was very important.
“He has done well in the last couple of years. Investing time into strategy has held him in good stead along with the technical solidity that he has, Sridharan Sriram said when asked about Adam Zampa’s role for Australia in T20 WC 2021.
Sridhar also explained how he himself works with the Aussie spinner to set up strategies and plans against opposition batsmen. He also informed that he does a lot of homework over opposition batsmen and works with Adam Zampa for planning his bowling attack against them.
“My conversations with him have been very good. My role is to make him technically as strong as possible. He has got people helping him back in Australia. But I think he trusts me a lot as well. Whenever he bowls in the nets, he just keeps a track of a few boxes that he has to tick off like his running technique, his loading.
“He sits down with me for every planning session, every opposition batter we go through. I have done a lot of homework, studying every batter, where they score, what they have done against leg-spin. That way, we work well together,” Zampa further said.
2021 has been an excellent year for Adam Zampa, especially in T20Is. The 29-year-old spinner has scalped 26 wickets in 21 matches in the shortest format this year, bowling at an average of 21.03 and an economy of 7.15. In ODIs, he played 3 games this year and picked 5 wickets, bowling at an average of 22.20 and a brilliant economy of just 4.97.
