After being sidelined in the four Test series in India, Australian leg spinner Adam Zampa may be considering a future in redball cricket.

National Selection Chairman George Bailey and coach Andrew Macdonald looked beyond Zampa and chose the Border Gavasker Series with Queensland legspinner Mitch Swepson. Ashton Agger, Nathan Lyon and Todd Murphy completed the Spin Quartet.

Having worked in international cricket before, I thought this was a chance (for him to play cricket in the Test),” Zampa said, referring to told to “And it was also the message six weeks ago that I could very well be there, but now I’m not.

“I was really excited to potentially be on that tour…and got the message that my style of bowling could be useful there.” I think it was a change of heart,” he added.

Zampa sees the ODI World Cup in India later this year as a top priority, and believes the T20 World Cup in the United States and Caribbean islands is on the list below. I believe Test cricket is not over yet.

“I’m not going to close the door on Redball cricket completely,” said the 30-year-old. “But life is all about balance, I have a family, the Whiteball Tour and the World Championships are coming up, so I have to think about what is best for my body, myself and my family.

“Two years until the next subcontinental tour, we still have a long way to go. Before that, we have to focus on two Whiteball World Cups.”
