A well-organised left-hand batsman from King Edward VII High School and admired everywhere for his character and leadership abilities, De Zorzi has taken a while to announce himself at franchise level after leading the SA U19 team at the ICC Under 19 World Cup in 2016.

But he began to find his feet in impressive fashion in the Momentum One-Day Cup last season, scoring a superbly-controlled century against the powerful VKB Knights attack in Kimberley in January. At just 20 years and 143 days old, De Zorzi became the youngest century-maker for the Titans in a franchise 50-over game, beating one AB de Villiers, who made 102 against Western Province/Boland in December 2004, 11 weeks before his 21st birthday.

Now a student at the University of Pretoria, in his second year of studying BCom Entrepreneurship, the hard work and focus De Zorzi puts into his cricket is sure to pay off this season.
