A legspinner with a run-up and action resembling that of Shane Warne, Adam Zampa emerged in Australia's ODI and T20 squads in 2016 after a successful summer for South Australia and the Melbourne Stars. In T20, especially, he has proven a hard man to get away, with subtle changes of pace and variations including a wrong'un and straight ball making up for a lack of prodigious turn.

At the 2016 World T20 in India, no Australian bowler took more wickets during the tournament than Zampa's five at 13.80 at an economy rate of 6.27. In the IPL that followed, he claimed what was the second-best figures in the tournament's history when he took 6 for 19 for Rising Pune Supergiants, albeit in a losing cause against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

After two years in and out of Australia's ODI and T20I teams he finally became a regular in 2019 playing every game on the successful tours of India and the UAE and bedding down his place for that year's World Cup squad.

His white-ball success has curbed his opportunities at first-class level. Zampa's father Darren played for New South Wales Country and Zampa also began his career in his home state, debuting for New South Wales in 2012-13 before moving to South Australia the following year. He return to Sydney for the 2019-2020 season in the hope of more first-class opportunity.
