Particularly in ODI cricket, most leg-spinners these days are attacking the stumps and that’s my strength,” Zampa said on the eve of the match.”I feel like when I get away from the stumps, guys like Virat and the other night [Kedar] Jadhav, I got little bit frustrated and went wide off the stumps, that is when the damage happen. It’s about staying away from their strengths,” said Zampa, who dismissed Kohli in the first T20 International in Visakhaptanam as well as the first ODI in Hyderabad.Zampa is happy that he has been to get better of world’s best batsman on a few occasions recently.”It’s nice to get players like that [Virat] out. I thought the best one was the T20 here [in Visakhapatnam] and another match in Brisbane. I thought they were big wickets given the situation of the match and we ended up winning the game [Visakhapatnam].But then Zampa also knows that getting Kohli alone won’t be enough.”Getting Virat is one thing, he was in at the time and it was big wicket, but then you also have to think about getting [Mahendra Singh] Dhoni out and Rohit [Sharma] out. Virat is big wicket, but there are six or seven big wickets in the Indian team,” Zampa told reporters here on the eve of the team’s second ODI here against hosts India.Kohli is always a prized catch but Adam Zampa does not intend to be too harsh on himself if the Indian captain or some of the other star batsman in the opposition ranks happen to dominate him.”I don’t want to think too far ahead and not be too harsh on myself. Virat [Kohli] and Rohit [Sharma] are amazing players and somehow I just need to be in the game for as long as possible. That’s all I can really do,” said Zampa.Also Read | Ashwin, Jadeja have always done well for India, Chahal and I haven’t ousted anyone: KuldeepAlso Read | Team India gears up for 2nd ODI vs Australia with gruelling practice session in NagpurFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Good news from Mannheim. Bjarte Myrhol is recovering successfully after his tumor operation, and is feeling better as days go by. This has made the RNL people quite happy, and everybody is waiting for his return to the field, but still it’s a mystery when that will happen, and for sure not at least 6 more weeks. However, it is indeed good news to hear that Bjarte is to be expected on the field in near future. ← Previous Story Kehrmann new Lemgo captain!
