Essex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Australian international leg-spinner, Adam Zampa, will return to the Club for the 2020 Vitality Blast campaign.

The 27-year-old will be available for the entire group stages and any potential knockout games, subject to selection by Cricket Australia.

The Australian took 12 wickets for the Eagles during the 2019 Blast campaign, as Simon Harmer’s side captured their first T20 title.

Zampa is excited about returning to The Cloudfm County Ground and said: “I’m really looking forward to getting back to Chelmsford and playing in front of that great crowd again.

“I’ve played there for the last two years now and Essex is a great Club to play for. I get on really well with all the lads in the changing room and I feel at home there.

“Last year was amazing. We didn’t start too well but once we got on a roll we were unstoppable. Not many people would have had us down to win it, but we knew what we were capable of, and hopefully, we can repeat that in 2020.”

[mpu-1Head Coach Anthony McGrath is thrilled to see Zampa return and said: “We all know just how talented Adam is as we’ve seen it the last two summers. He’s one of the best leg-spinners around at the moment.

“He’s been excellent for us the last couple of seasons and he’s a great guy to have around the dressing room, so I’m delighted he’s going to be back with us.”

Essex’s Overseas signings are in partnership with Seven Investment Management, the Eagles’ Vitality Blast shirt sponsor.
