Australian leg spinner Adam Zampa on Tuesday revealed the reason behind quitting the Indian Premier League 2021 mid way. The Royal Challengers Bangalore tweaker said it was the most vulnerable bio-bubble he has been part of and added that the tournament should have been held in UAE like the previous season.
Speaking to Sydney Morning Herald, Zampa mentioned he felt lot safer in the UAE last year. He also said that the players were always told about the hygiene factor in India, which made life in the bubble much more difficult. Apart from Zampa, teammate Kane Richardson too made an exit from the cash-rich tournament.
Zampa was bought by the Bangalore-based franchise for INR 1.5 Crore. However, he didn’t get to play a game this season. The cricketer responded to the question of India hosting the T20 World Cup later this year. Zampa said that it will be a matter of discussion but there is still a lot of time left for the flagship event in T20 cricket.
Zampa doesn’t regret the financial loss that he suffered due to leaving the league half way. He considers mental health as his top priority and hence the decision stands wise. RCB are currently at the top of the points table with 10 points from 6 outings.
