Former Australian all-rounder David Hussey believes Adam Zampa’s hopes of playing red-ball cricket were likely killed by his rejection from Australia’s Test squad for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy in India.
“He (Zampa) played a red-ball Shield game for New South Wales against Victoria at the Junction Oval just prior to the Big Bash starting and he bowled particularly well. I think all reports from (head coach Andrew) McDonald and (chairman of selectors) George Bailey (was that) he (Zampa) was going to be going to India,” Hussey told SEN Radio on Thursday.
I think he would do an excellent job: Hussey
“Unfortunately for Adam (Zampa) he didn’t get the nod, but personally I think he would do an excellent job. Not too dissimilar to Anil Kumble, who was a fine bowler for India for many a year. Purely a sub-continent selection, I think he would have done a great job. But it would seem with his snub that his Test aspirations have probably passed him by,” Hussey added.
Australia will be playing 4 Test Matches in Border Gavaskar Trophy against India starting from 9th February.
