Australia's Zampa enjoys his latest spin-bowling rollercoaster at World Cup

Australia's Zampa enjoys his latest spin-bowling rollercoaster at World Cup

During the fourth match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Afghanistan and Australia at Bristol, Australia defeated Afghanistan by 7 wickets to start their World Cup journey on a winning note.

After electing to bat first, Afghanistan could only score 207 runs.

On Saturday, the first official hit-out, leg-spinner Adam Zampa - who took three wickets in the seven-wicket win - said the side was handling the animosity well. With bowling figures of 8.2-0-40-3, Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins was the pick of their bowlers. But you can just about bet it's going to keep coming, particularly when Australia play England towards the end of the tournament.

He ended a 51-run third wicket partnership between Hashmatullah Shahidi (18) and Rahmat Shah (43), sliding one past a charging Shahidi's bat to have him stumped before Rahmat fell to the legspinner at cover.

And, for the first time in his 107-match ODI career, he played out two maidens in one innings, both bowled by the energetic headband-wearing seamer Hamid Hassan.

"It's a positive victory and now we move onto the West Indies.There's a great buzz about this team at this moment".

There were sounds of boos as David Warner walked out to bat in the middle in his first global game post the Sandpaper Gate incident.




Warner put on 96 in 16.2 overs for the opening wicket, with Finch smashing 66 off 49.

Rashid Khan enjoyed a late flourish but Afghanistan were all out with more than 11 overs of their innings remaining. Najibullah Zadran (51) and Naib (31) joined forces at 77-5 and upped the tempo in an 83-run stand, belting Zampa out of the attack by clouting two boundaries and two sixes off the last four balls of the 29th over.

Australia captain Aaron Finch: "There was a bit of nerves - we've been training for so long, we were probably ready to go three or four days ago". A different David Warner was on show tonight, with him taking the backseat and allowing Finch to express himself.

The first match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka saw the Black Caps cruising to an easy 10-wicket win over the Islanders, while the second match of the game saw David Warner return to his best form to give Australia a seven-wicket win over Afghanistan.

Zampa was also full of praise for the way Afghanistan played after they found themselves 77/5 in the 20th over and expects Gulbadin Naib's side to cause a few upsets during the tournament.

"Honestly, we spoke about it during our camp in Brisbane, about how we are going to react to it and how we are going to handle it and we haven't spoken about it since".

On his team's chances of defending the World Cup title, Stoinis said, "We're in a good place as a team, we're looking to have fun, we enjoy each other's company, we're gonna celebrate our success together and every wicket that we take".
