Adam Zampa, the foreign leg-spinner of new IPL team Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS), praised Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli for his outstanding match winning knock of unbeaten 108 runs chasing the big total of 192 runs.

RCB won the match by 7 wickets with 3 balls to spare thanks to the Kohli’s heroic captain’s knock of unbeaten 108 runs in 58 balls.

After losing the must-win game against RCB on Saturday evening at Bangalore, Zampa spoke out at the press conference, “Virat Kohli at the moment is batting like a machine, he times his innings very well.”

“He does not rush at the start of innings. He gives himself time, and then hits the ball all round the ground, 360 degrees, so that’s what makes it very hard to bowl to. He times his innings very well.”

In this match, Zampa made IPL debut and put a decent performance as he ended the match with 2/35. Zampa admitted that it is a great experience for him. Zampa said on it, “It has been a very good experience. I have played here for Australia in the World Cup and it’s a little bit different the atmosphere, visibly, in the IPL. Mostly Indian players and some awesome overseas players. The atmosphere is great.”

When Zampa was asked that why his skipper MS Dhoni gave only one over to their experienced off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, Zampa replied, “I am guessing mostly because it was two right-handers in all the time, spinning in. Probably waiting for a left-hander to get in but they did not have many left-handers, so not many opportunities for him there.”

When Zampa was asked about his team’s chance to qualify for playoffs in the IPL 2016, he admitted that it would be difficult for them at the current stage. Zampa said, “Very difficult. We probably have to win every game now, maybe give away one but that’s about it.”

However, Zampa is still hopeful that his team can qualify for the play-off. Zampa said, “Having watched IPL from a distance in the past, we know that teams can make a comeback at the end but we have got to improve the way we are playing to even get close.”
