Adam Zampa and his much-publicized omission from the upcoming tour of India has seen many heads turned. While the young leg-spinner is predominantly deployed at the limited-overs’ level, but it will perhaps only be a matter of time before he is deployed at the Test match level as well.
Referring to his omission from the squad, Zampa went on to state that it was indeed a disappointing feeling to be left out of the side. Mitchell Swepson, the man who has been impressive in the Big Bash League will be deployed in attack.
“It’s disappointing being seen as just a defensive option,” Zampa said. “I thought that the defensive style of bowling usually works in those conditions and my experience over there could’ve helped.
“There’s not much you can really do about it, the selectors have gone for a more attacking option.
Zampa went on to add that he had never been in the Test squad and therefore did not have any feedback as of yet. “I’ve never actually been in the Test squad so the feedback you have to try and go and get yourself, obviously from the press conference with [chairman of selectors] Trevor Hohns.
He, however, went on to add that Swepson was indeed a good bowler as well. “Mitchell Swepson’s a very good bowler. I’ve watched him throughout the BBL and it’s going to be nice to have that healthy competition with him for however many years. “I’ve actually bowled really well the last couple of years in [Sheffield] Shield cricket,” Zampa said.
“It always helps when you’ve got guys taking wickets around you like I have with [Chadd] Sayers, [Daniel] Worrall, [Joe] Mennie and [Kane] Richardson. I’ll keep playing my role within that team and then hopefully one day I get a crack. I’ll still be concentrating on my strengths more than anything.
