Eager to work with Chahal, says Adam Zampa
Since its inception, the Indian Premier League has provided a forum for various players to demonstrate their credentials. The tournament is structured in such a way that it allows players from varying countries to come together under one roof. Last month, RCB roped in the services of leg-spinner Adam Zampa as a replacement for Kane Richardson, who pulled out of the IPL to be with his wife for the birth of his first child.
He believes it's a great opportunity for him to pick a leaf out of Yuzvendra Chahal's book. "I really enjoy bowling with another leg-spinner so it's going to be a really good opportunity to bowl with Chahal. We have similar traits but can learn a little bit from each other as well,” Zampa was quoted as saying to cricket.com.au.
The 28-year-old also added that he relishes bowling in the key stages of the game, a role which he has often taken over in the Big Bash League in recent years. "I really enjoy bowling at the death, I love those pressure overs especially when the game is on the line,” he added.
He enjoyed substantial success in the death overs for Melbourne Stars, operating with an impressive economy rate of 8.19. But, the ultimate challenge for the leggie will be to break into the playing XI. Zampa, who does not shy away from the challenges, will look to press his claims for Royal Challengers Bangalore, particularly in the closing stages of the game.
