Adam Zampa achieves this all time milestone for Australia in T 20 cricket

Australian leggie Adam Zampa continues to rattle batters with his phenomenal bowling. Zampa once again showed his class against Namibia, picking up four wickets with the ball.
It was Adam Zampa’s exceptional bowling as he picked up 4 wickets, giving away just 12 runs in his 4 overs quota, which helped Australia bowl out Namibia for just 72 runs. The Mighty Australians chased down the target in just 5.4 overs, which helped them qualify for the Super 8.
Zampa becomes the first bowler for Australia to pick up 100 wickets in the shortest format of the game. He is also the leading wicket-taker for Australia in this format.

In his post-match presentation, Adam Zampa said, “To get the win tonight and qualify for the Super Eights, that is a nice feeling. (On his bowling rhythm) Yes and no. I bowled a couple of pies tonight, but in general, the ball feels like it is coming out well. Being encouraged to pick up wickets in the middle, particularly by the captain. (Bowling with the breeze.) We experienced that in Barbados as well. We know that on these wickets, that is a challenge. We are happy; it is the first step in trying to take the trophy home, but we still have a long way to go.”
