The Melbourne Stars have confirmed star spinner Adam Zampa has signed a new two-year extension with the Big Bash League franchise, now penned to the Stars until the end of BBL|14.
Zampa, Australia's leading white-ball spinner, has emerged as a stalwart for Melbourne since arriving from the Adelaide Strikers seven years ago, having taken the most wickets by any spinner in the tournament's history.
While the South Australian was already signed to the Stars for the season ahead, Zampa has added a further two campaigns to his contract.
The 30-year-old has made Melbourne his home away from home, and will have his sights on leading the Stars to their maiden BBL championship following Australia's T20 World Cup bid.
"I love coming to Melbourne every year for the BBL and I'm looking forward to spending another two seasons as part of the Stars Family," he said in a club statement.
"We've been able to assemble a great group of players and I want to achieve the ultimate prize with this group.
"It's a huge summer coming up in Australian cricket and I can't wait to get to Melbourne after the ICC T20 World Cup for BBL|12."
Zampa has recorded 82 of his 98 career BBL wickets with the stars, transitioning his stellar services for Australia to the domestic stage.
While he played a pivotal role in Australia's T20 glory last year, Zampa is hopeful he can add a BBL trophy to his decorated career.
In an interview with Cricket.com.au, Zampa stated the Stars have "unfinished business" for their upcoming campaign.
"I've been at the Stars for quite a long time now," he said.
"There's quite a bit of unfinished business – we're yet to win the title so there's still that bit of burning desire left for quite a few of us at the club."
Zampa will gain the assistance of fellow international figures in Trent Boult and Luke Wood for BB|12, while key names in Marcus Stoinis, Glen Maxwell and Nathan Coulter-Nile remain at the club for this season.
The Stars will begin their BBL|12 campaign against the Sydney Thunder on Tuesday, December 13 at Manuka Oval.
