Batsman Tony de Zorzi is relishing the opportunity of linking up with the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras and working with head coach Ashwell Prince after making the move from the Multiply Titans.
Having played his cricket in Pretoria for the past four years, the left-hander will now embark on a new journey in Cape Town, one which he hopes will help him grow his game and lead to bigger accomplishments in the future.
‘I just want to be part of the team culture at the Cobras and become one of the pillars for success in the team and adding more match-winning performances. Performances or even moments that contribute massively to winning a particular game and then trophies is the main goal,’ De Zorzi said.
The 22-year-old struck a magnificent 213 at Newlands against the Cobras in last season’s 4-Day Franchise Series and has shown a lot a maturity in the game time he received at the Titans.
He was also in excellent form with the bat in the recent Momentum One-Day Cup where he accumulated 479 runs before the competition was ended by the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘I take note of a lot things that I’m doing both on and off the field when things are going well, so that I can try replicate that success and make it consistent. I do enjoy talking about cricket.
‘I spent a lot of time with my former teammate Jonathan Vandiar off the field and we spoke about cricket most of the time and I think I learned a lot of crucial insights, tips and tricks that doesn’t always come from coaches, but from guys who are currently playing or going through things themselves,’ added De Zorzi.
