Zampa ‘pretty excited about going to India’


Spinner Adam Zampa says he is excited to be part of Australia's squad for the World T20 in India but knows their will be no let up against quality batsman.

The 23-year-old South Australia bowler played in two games in the Aussies' two-one series win against South Africa and bowled accurately in the middle-overs, returning figures of none for 26 and none for 23 while bowling his full compliment of overs.

A right-arm leg-break bowler, Zampa says there is no secret to what he does when he bowls as he just tries to keep things simple.

Zampa said on Cricket Australia's website: "Against these players as soon as you give them anything, on these grounds, with the bats they use, it generally goes over the fence.

"I try and work out other ways to get them off strike and make them to play a rash shot and not think about bowling a ripping leg-spinner.

"There are other ways around it which I've done for the past few years. At the moment it's just excitement. I'm pretty excited about going to India.

"Obviously South Africa was a nice little warm-up, it was good to get the series win. It's exciting, very exciting."

Australia start their World T20 campaign against New Zealand in Dharamsala on 18 March.
