Australian spin attack stacks up against any of the other nations: Zampa

Apart from Zampa, Australia also have Ashton Agar and Mitchell Swepson in their squad

Adam Zampa feels that the Australian spin attack can “stack up against any of the other nations” but knows there will be pressure on them to do well in the T20 World Cup, which will be played in the spin-friendly conditions in the United Arab Emirates. Apart from Zampa, Australia also have Ashton Agar and Mitchell Swepson in their squad.

"Depending on the wickets here, there'll be a lot of pressure on the spinners to do well. We're really lucky to have Ash and I, really experienced options, but also another really good option in Mitchell Swepson," Zampa told AAP.

"In terms of the spin department, we stack up against any of the other nations to be honest with you. I'm really confident in our ability. Obviously the Australian cricket team has always been known for its great fast bowlers, batting has always been really strong. We (spinners) go about our work under the radar a little bit, which we like."

Australia's all-time leading wicket-taker in the format, Zampa and Agar helped Australia become the top-ranked T20I side in 2020. The legspinner said that they get along well together off the field and are very clear about their roles.

"Both spin bowlers, pretty similar age and pretty similar interests outside of the game. We get along really well, so naturally we put in a conscious effort to make sure that each other does really well. We talk about the game a lot, about spin bowling and tactics."

The two were also part of the 2016 T20 World Cup squad but Zampa believes that this format has changed a lot since then.

"It does feel like a lifetime ago. People try to put you under pressure a lot more compared to five years ago. The young guys coming through are just really, really fearless. I remember being a young middle-overs spinner, you used to have time to get into a spell and work away."
