Essex Cricket have agreed to let Adam Zampa end his spell with the Club early to play in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Zampa will now link up with the Jamaica Tallawahs for the T20 competition, which started on Wednesday.

The 26 year-old leg-spinner took 12 wickets in 10 matches during his time with the Eagles, with an economy rate of 7.90.

Head Coach, Anthony McGrath, said: “Adam has been one of the shining lights for us during this year’s Vitality Blast campaign, but we have honoured his desire to go and play in the Caribbean.

“Adam has been brilliant for the group and has really enjoyed his time with the Club, but after not making the Quarter-Final stages we granted his request to move onto the CPL.

“Having players who fit in well to the group is a key quality we look for when recruiting new faces, so it would be great to have Adam back with us in the future.

“We all know that this year’s competition hasn’t gone to plan but the spirit in the dressing room is still high and we are focused on finishing the campaign on a positive note.”

Adam Zampa said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my spell at Essex, and although we haven’t managed to get the results on the pitch, playing in front of the Chelmsford crowd was very special.

“I’m grateful to the Club for allowing me to play in the Caribbean Premier League when the opportunity came along and I would love to pull on an Essex shirt again.”

The Club would like to thank Adam for his contribution during his time at the Club and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
