Australian spinner Adam Zampa likes to take on the challenge and wants to master the bowling of the death overs, representing the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020).
Zampa is also accompanied by Yuzvendra Chahal in the team and both of them are wrist spinners but the Australian is eager to pick the brain of his IPL teammate when it comes to death bowling.
In the T20 International series against England, Zampa could not bowl strong in the last over.
Zampa, who had earlier played two IPL seasons for the Rising Pune Super Giants, said, “I really enjoy bowling at the death, I love those pressure overs especially when the game is on the line.”
“They needed 18 to win off the last two overs and I told Finch I should bowl it. It obviously didn’t go to plan but I’m not going to change my attitude after one game.
“I’ve got a really good opportunity in the IPL bowling with Chahal at RCB and I might get the opportunity to bowl those overs just because of the way the team is structured,” he told Cricket Australia’s official website referring to the match against England.
However, it will be difficult for Adam Zampa to make a place in the playing XI, as apart from Chahal, the team also has Washington Sundar and Pawan Negi and England all-rounder Moeen Ali.
But he seems untroubled.
“I really enjoy bowling with another leg-spinner so it’s going to be a really good opportunity to bowl with Chahal,” said Zampa.
“We have similar traits but can learn a little bit from each other as well.”
Zampa hasn’t played a lot of matches in the IPL after making his debut back in the IPL 2016. He took 19 wickets at an economy rate of 7.55 in 11 matches. Back then, he played for the Rising Pune Supergiant under MS Dhoni and Steve Smith’s leadership.
