Australian leggie Adam Zampa is optimistic about wrist spinners’ chances in the upcoming day of international cricket and feels they may face a lot of success. This bowling art has been proved ‘X-factor’ for several teams when it comes to the limited-over cricket.

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are the best example of it, who have wrecked havoc in the One-Day International series in South Africa with their wrists.

“A lot of countries around the world are opting for two wrist-spinners, let alone no wrist-spinners. It’s just the grounds and the situations we’ve got ourselves in probably that make it a little bit different in Australia. I think wrist spin is definitely the way forward in particular and even two or three spinners in a team,” said Zampa.

In the T20 International game involving Australia and England one wrist spinner featured in both teams. Aadil Rashid and Zampa shared 5 wickets between them, where Australia came victorious by 5 wickets.

Zampa further went to add that this form of bowling can prove handy in the upcoming years of limited-over cricket. “We saw the other night that it was the two spinners that changed the game for us so I think definitely having a wrist-spinner that can spin it both ways is always good to have in your team.I would like to think it’s a better team with me in it,” he added.

Talking about his personal performance with the ball, the leggie said he is putting a lot of effort in the shorter format. However, he is not regular in the Australia team and missed the opening match of T20I tri-series involving New Zealand as the third nation.

“The last couple of years I’ve hardly put a foot wrong in Twenty20 Internationals. I was definitely disappointed not to play but the squad mentality thing is pretty important. Coming up to the MCG where I do play my Big Bash, hopefully I’ll come into consideration,” he conceded.

Australia leg of this T20I series will end tomorrow with a match between old rivals. Australia and England will play for a final time in this summer at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
