“Talking about [Tony] De Zorzi [who can also bat No 3]‚ I think he is a fantastic player and I can see him in the Proteas set-up not too long from now. He has a beautiful cover drive and he has a good head over his shoulders.”
The star batter in the win over the Stars during the week was Proteas Test opener Dean Elgar‚ and De Villiers was highly impressed by one of the senior players in the match where the Spartans were under pressure to win to remain in contention for the playoffs.
“I am glad we pushed him up the order. I think he was getting frustrated floating around‚” De Villiers said.
“He has a lot of experience because he has been playing at the highest level for many years now. He is a fighter and that is the type of guy you want.
“In general‚ I am expecting a better game against the Blitz and we have a good chance of coming on top because we are at home.”
