Australia leg-break bowler, Adam Zampa is now focusing for the summer, as he wants to mount his case for the 2019 World Cup in England.

However, Adam Zampa enjoyed T20 with Essex in the UK and Jamaica in the Caribbean. He has improved his bowling action and developed a faster googly as well. Moreover, he was tasked with bowling in batsmen-friendly conditions of late.

The winter was quite good – Adam Zampa

The leggie has a lot of pressure to do well, as he is representing as an overseas player in the CPL 2018.

Zampa also added the franchises in the T20 leagues were not afraid to give the ball to him to deliver a good spell. However, in the Australian team and the Big Bash League, they wouldn’t probably look to do so.

“I think the winter for me was really good, as an overseas player the pressure is on you to do well. They’re not afraid to give you the ball when sometimes in the Australian team or the Big Bash they probably wouldn’t look to give you the ball.” Adam Zampa said.

Meanwhile, Adam Zampa said he found himself to be bowling in the most challenging situation of the game. However, it has tested his mental strength and technique for which he has been working for a long time.

“I found myself in most games I was bowling in pressure situations. It tested my mental strength; it tested my technique which is something I’ve been working on as well.”

Moreover, Adam Zampa conveyed for now; his focus is only to play the 2019 World Cup, as he was not able to retain himself in the team for the last couple of years.

“My focus at the moment would probably be the World Cup, I’ve had a big couple of years in and out of the one-day team, so my focus is really on the World Cup.” Adam Zampa added.

However, Adam Zampa played 31 matches for his nation picking up 42 wickets averaging 34.73.
