Leg spinner Adam Zampa who plays for Rising Pune Supergiant in the Indian Premier League (IPL) took to his twitter account and poked fun at his former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who recently stepped down from Team India’s captaincy and was removed as the skipper of Rising Pune Supergiant. Zampa proved to be a lethal weapon for Dhoni in the previous edition despite the team not performing well over a consistent period.

Zampa conceded that he was en route to Pune to join the franchise for the upcoming tournament scheduled to be played from 5th April. In the same tweet, he also mentioned that he was eagerly waiting to meet MSD once he reaches Pune. However, he mocked at Dhoni’s facial hair jokingly. Taking to his twitter handle Zampa wrote, “en route to Pune can’t wait to see this man’s beautifully sculpted facial hair.”

With the conversation, it must be pretty clear to everyone that Zampa and Dhoni shares a wonderful bonding and Dhoni have trusted him much more than the Australian team management and Steve Smith ever has. He has been asked to bowl in crucial junctures and he has delivered for Dhoni. Despite putting up impressive performances he hasn’t been a regular member of the Australian limited overs team.

Cited as one of the future prospects of the nation, Zampa has developed into an uncanny bowler who has the ability to unsettle batsman with his variations and bounce. Though he doesn’t turn the ball much it is enough to create doubt in the batsman’s mind with his steep bounce and immaculate line and length.

In the recent T20I series against Sri Lanka which they lost by a 2-1 margin, the leg-spinner was not included in the Playing XI for the opening two matches and Australia went on to lose both their matches. In the final encounter, Zampa was given a chance and he responded immediately with a four-wicket haul. It was instrumental in saving Australia from the blushes of yet another whitewash at home.
