Cape Town - In-form Dolphins batsman Khaya Zondo is determined to carry his four-day form into T20 cricket when the T20 Challenge begins this weekend.

The 26-year-old has been in the form of his life in the Sunfoil Series, recording four fifties and a big century to help his franchise start the campaign strongly.

Now he wants to replicate his performances on the T20 stage and hopes to bring a trophy with it. “Obviously if you're in form in one format, it’s a lot easier to adjust to another format, so I want to keep it going for as long as possible,” he said.

“I definitely want to hit it out of the park and want to be picking up that trophy at the end of the season.

“Those are the two things I’d like to achieve from this competition. I’d love to get a few big scores as well. Hopefully I’ll be able to get another T20 hundred.”

Zondo is also relishing the prospect of batting alongside T20 superstar Kevin Pietersen once more. The former England batsman will link up with the Dolphins for the second half of the campaign. Last season he played in the first half of the campaign, with his excellent showings propelling the Durbanites to the final, which they eventually lost to the Titans.

Zondo added: “I think he adds value to any team he walks into. He can walk into any team in the world.“He was here last year and was brilliant for us in those first five games. It was the work he did that actually got us to the final. 

“Now it’s the other way around and hopefully he’ll just come in and win us the trophy at the end.”
