Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa continued his outstanding bowling form against England at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 as he created a new history with the most consecutive innings with three or more wickets in the ODI World Cup.

Adam Zampa started the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India in a horrible way as he took only one wicket in the first two matches with expensive bowling figures, where the five-time ODI World Cup winners suffered big defeats.

But while Australia have strongly returned to form with five successive wins to strengthen their battle for the Semi-final spot, Zampa has played a huge role for the national team.

In all the last five games in this tournament, Zampa took at least three wickets in each outing.

The leg-spinner Zampa has picked up 18 wickets in the last five schedules at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, including three successive four-wicket hauls.
