The 28-year-old has decided that the time is right for him to return to his home State to be closer to his family, and that of partner Harriet.

Zampa moved to South Australia in 2013 in search of more opportunity and became a regular feature in Australia’s limited-overs teams during his time with the West End Redbacks.

General Manager, High Performance Tim Nielsen said:

“We are disappointed to lose an Australian player from our list but totally understand Adam for wanting to return home.

“The timing was right for Adam and his family so we thank him for his services and wish him well.”

Zampa took 95 wickets at 50.83 from his 35 Marsh Sheffield Shield matches for SA, but was most impressive in the domestic one-day competition, with 51 wickets from 34 matches.

The Redbacks will officially announce their final contract list in the coming days, after Tasmania also confirmed the move of spinner Tom Andrews.
