Adam Zampa Bio

Adam Zampa is a talented cricketer from Australia. He was born in Shellharbour, New South Wales, Australia, on March 31, 1992. Zampa is a right-handed batsman who bowls leg breaks.


Domestic Career

Zampa used to bowl medium pace while he was in college, but after the publication of Cricket Australia’s new rules for Under-14 matches, which limited the speed of fast bowlers, he switched to leg spin. He was named to Australia’s Under-19 squad in 2009 and played in the successful 2010 Under-19 World Cup campaign.

In his prime, he was very effective with his old-school method of throwing the ball above the eye-line. As a result, New South Wales signed him in 2010, but he didn’t get to play right away because the team already had two good spinners. Zampa made his first-class debut against Queensland in the 2012-13 Sheffield Shield season, taking 5 wickets. He was signed by South Australia in 2013 and scored his first hat-trick against Western Australia in the 2014-15 Matador BBQs One-Day Cup.He has played for Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League. Zampa has 105 First-Class wickets and 99 List-A wickets in 38 First-Class and 99 List-A games, respectively.

IPL Career

Zampa’s consistent economical bowling in T20s attracted the interest of many franchise owners, and the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiants purchased him. Zampa achieved the second best bowling figure in IPL history after taking 6 wickets for 19 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad while playing under the leadership of MS Dhoni and Steve Smith.

With 19 wickets in 11 IPL games, this wrist-spinner seemed to have a thing for turning Indian pitches. After two reasonably successful seasons in the IPL, he was passed over by both franchises, but in 2020, Zampa was selected as a replacement for countryman Kane Richardson by Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead of the league’s 13th edition.

International Career

Zampa was named to the Australian squad for the 2015-16 Chappell-Hadlee Trophy against New Zealand in 2015, and made his debut on February 6, 2016, in the second match of the series. He bowled his maximum quota of 10 overs in his debut match, taking two wickets for 57 runs. Zampa was a part of Australia’s squad for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, but he didn’t get much of a chance to participate because two of the team’s three group stage matches were rained out, and the team was unable to advance to the finals. He was selected to Australia’s squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup in April 2019. Zampa has taken 85 wickets in 58 One-Day Internationals so far.

Zampa made his debut in the shortest format of the game against South Africa on March 4, 2016. He did not get a wicket in the match, but he bowled his quota with a 6.50 economy pace. Since his debut, Zampa has done well enough to keep his place in the squad. He established himself as a cost-effective wicket-taker, especially in T20s. As a result, his name was added to the 2016 T20 World Cup squad. Despite Australia’s lacklustre performance in the competition, Zampa finished as the country’s leading wicket-taker with an outstanding economy rate of 6.27.Given his performance, he was dropped for the second game of Australia’s three-match T20 series with Sri Lanka in 2016-17, resulting in a loss of the match and the series. He then went out to bat in the dead-rubber and took three wickets for 25 runs. As a result, Australia won the game. In 33 T20I matches, he has 36 wickets.


Zampa is from New South Wales, but he moved to South Australia to play domestic cricket in 2013. He wears the #63 jersey in honour of his late teammate Phil Hughes. At SeaWorld Entertainment, he served as a Dolphin Trainer. His father, Darren, was a New South Wales cricketer. He adores puppies and has a pet dog called Zaidee. Harriet Palmer is Zampa’s fiancée.
