The 28-year-old, who signed a contract with NSW for the upcoming season, is hoping to play extra top notch video games since Lyon is anticipated to be principally away on Test obligation.
“You’d have to be silly not to aim for Test cricket, and also be silly not to recognise that Nathan has that spot, and solidly for the next three or four years minimum,” Zampa was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
“If you’re another spinner in the country your best bet is try and play with Nathan so if I can form a relationship with him and play some Shield cricket with Nath, that’s probably the best way for me to get that Baggy Green,” he added.
The leg spinner stated he is had a number of conversations about his position on the new membership with NSW coach Phil Jaques, who performed a significant position in Zampa’s getting again to NSW after a seven-year stint with South Australia.
“I’ve known Jaquesy for a long time, I played with him at Sutherland as well, so I’ve known him for 15 years. We’ve had honest conversations already about where I sit, in Shield cricket particularly,” he stated.
“Which is good; I know that I’m not here to play every Shield game, but when I do, to try take every opportunity and if I can play with Nathan, that’s going to be a massive bonus,” Zampa added.
Zampa, who made his top notch debut with NSW in 2012, shall be sharing the dressing room with prime cricketers similar to Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc and David Warner.
Zampa is assured he can enhance his recreation with the purple ball as he performs extra top notch cricket.
“It’s actually simply been a scarcity of alternative the previous few years. I felt three years in the past I had one full season of Shield cricket and my recreation improved so much.
“But ever since then I’ve mainly performed a variety of white-ball cricket for Australia and the chance simply wasn’t there. I have never performed a lot red-ball cricket to be sincere, so I’m wanting ahead to it,” he added.
