In the 24th match of the T20 World Cup 2024, Australia and Namibia locked horns and displayed a thrilling encounter. While bowling first, Australia set the stage on fire. They didn’t let the Namibian batters build an impactful partnership which cost the match. All the Australian bowlers showcased their excellence but Adam Zampa shined the brightest.

After that exciting performance, Adam Zampa became the Player of the Match. After winning the award, he reflected on the win. He said, “It sounds fine, we qualify for the Super 8s, that’s a nice feeling. Enjoying bowling, being encouraged to take wickets by the captain, just trying to do my thing mate. We are happy (to qualify), first step in trying to take the trophy home, but long way to go.”

Zampa’s Outstanding Milestone:

Adam Zampa made history as the first Australian to notch 100 T20I wickets, achieving the feat against Namibia.
