Check Out Rajasthan Royals' Viral Tweet on Left Arm Super-dad Adam Zampa
Adam Zampa became a father for the first time in June of last year, when he greeted a baby son. When he's not weaving a web of spin to trap batters, the Australian star, who plays for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, is an amazing parent.
The RR recently tweeted a pair of sweet photos of Zampa cuddling his baby kid Eugene.
RR noticed that Zampa had Eugene wrapped around his left hand in both photos. "Meet Adam Zampa- Right arm leg-break and Left arm super-dad," RR wrote in a tweet.
The humorous parallel piqued the interest of RR fans, with the tweet receiving over 2,500 likes.
One person compared Zampa's appearance in the photos to that of Hollywood actor Tom Holland, who is best known for playing the Marvel superhero Spider-Man.
In one remark, the fan jokingly referred to the Australian spinner as "Tom Holland lite."
Last year, Zampa and his wife Harriet Palmer welcomed their first kid, Eugene.
At the time, Australia was in Sri Lanka for a white-ball series. Zampa was scheduled to join the tour but opted to stay home to be with his better half.
The cricketer revealed the baby's name in an Instagram story.
Since making his international debut in 2016, Zampa has quickly established himself as a fixture in Australia's limited-overs system. He made his IPL debut in the 2016 season, when Rising Pune Super Giants signed him for Rs 30 lakhs.
Zampa played five matches in his first season in the franchise-based tournament, taking 12 wickets. The following season, Royal Challengers Bangalore signed the Australian leggie. Zampa took 9 wickets in 9 matches for RCB from 2014 to 2020.
He was out of the IPL for three seasons until returning for the Rajasthan Royals in 2023. Last season, he appeared in eight games and took eight wickets.
Because of his consistent performance in white-ball formats, Zampa has been included to Australia's preliminary team for the 2023 ODI World Cup, which will be held in India in October-November.
