Adam Zampa was one of the best performers for Australia at the last ICC T20 World Cup. However, he admitted he was shattered to miss out on another chance to play in the Indian Premier League.

The cricket’s most lucrative tournament saw Tim David, the Hobart Hurricanes power-hitter, become the highest-paid Australian while renowned Aaron Finch, Steve Smith, and Zampa went unsold.

Zampa’s snub showed that franchises are more satisfied with homegrown spinners, and the preference is on overseas all-rounders and pacers.

The tweakers like Adil Rashid, Tabraiz Shamsi, Imran Tahir, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman also attracted no bid.

“I missed out at the auction. I am a little bit surprised about that, to be honest,” Zampa, who took 13 wickets at an economy of 5.81 at the global event, told the Unplayable Podcast.

“I thought I would get the deal this year, considering my performance in the UAE. International cricket is the best, and then the next big thing is the IPL. Maybe next year in the IPL, there will be an opportunity for me; I would be a valuable addition for the teams.”
