Adam Zampa reveals reason behind non-participation in IPL 2024

While speaking on the Willow Talk podcast, Zampa revealed that he “had the best intentions of trying to play the IPL against this year” but pulled out at the end with the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 in vision.

Zampa had a few busy months leading into the IPL 2024. He played all 11 games for Australia during the course of the ODI World Cup 2023 and finished as their leading wicket-taker with 23 scalps.

He was only behind Mohammed Shami (24 wickets) in the overall wickets column and his contribution played a crucial role in Australia winning the marquee tournament.

Cricket Australia decided to rest him for the five-match T20I series in India which began three days after the World Cup final.

The right-arm leggie then represented Melbourne Renegades (MR) in eight games during the Big Bash League (BBL). After a decent break from international cricket, Zampa answered the call of duty with the white-ball home series against the West Indies and also represented the Kangaroos during their three-match T20I series against the Kiwis in New Zealand.

“There are several reasons why the IPL wasn’t for me this year. I think the most important one was the fact that it’s a World Cup year and I’m completely drained from 2023,” Zampa said. “I did the full IPL last year. Obviously, the World Cup was three months in India as well.
