Zampa hopes to complete Australia’s World Cup double in India.

Adam Zampa has already tasted success on the big stage, having won the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, and the first-choice Australia spinner hopes to complete the double by assisting his team in hoisting the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup trophy in India later this year.

Zampa was instrumental in Australia’s first T20 World Cup victory in Dubai in 2021, and he will play an even bigger role on the subcontinent in October and November as his team seeks a sixth 50-over World Cup title.

“Winning the T20 World Cup was one of the best feelings I’ve had on the cricket field, and I would imagine winning the 50-over World Cup would be a pretty similar feeling,” Zampa said during the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour.

“You don’t get many chances to win World Cups.”

“We’re still thinking about the World Cup we won two years ago (2021) and trying to recreate that feeling.”

“We were disappointed with how our 2019 World Cup finished, and we still have that burning desire to win a one-day World Cup.”

That 2019 World Cup campaign, to which Zampa refers, saw Australia lose in the semi-finals to eventual champions England, and the five-time champions are working hard to replicate their success on home soil in 2015.

Australia is currently playing a white-ball series in South Africa and will return to the subcontinent at the end of this month for a series against India ahead of the World Cup.

Australia will enter the World Cup with a three-pronged spin attack, with Ashton Agar and Tanveer Sangha named to a preliminary 18-player squad alongside Zampa.

Zampa believes his team still needs some fine-tuning before the World Cup, but he is confident his team has enough firepower to go all the way in India.

“Our one-day cricket has been really good for a long time, and we are one of the best teams in the world according to the ICC rankings,” Zampa said, referring to Australia’s second-place finish in the MRF Tyres ODI Team Rankings behind Pakistan.

“We’ve been playing some really good one-day cricket recently, so hopefully the boys have played enough cricket or gotten enough rest so that when we get to India, we’ll be ready to go.”
