Fast bowler Monde Zondeki has accepted a national contract from Cricket South Africa for the 2008-2009 year.

The contract was originally offered to his Cape Cobras colleague, Charl Langeveldt, but he has declined it to pursue a career with Derbyshire in the England county championship.

“We are sorry to lose a player of Charl’s calibre who has given excellent service to South Africa over a long period of time.

“He is currently playing the best cricket of his career and we all have fond memories of his five-wicket haul on Test match debut against England and his hat trick against the West Indies in 2005 that not only won an ODI but a series,” commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola.

He goes onto say that it was one of the memorable moments in South African cricket history.

“At the same time we are delighted that Monde has accepted the vacant contract. He fully deserves it after an outstanding season for the Nashua Cape Cobras that earned him a national call-up for the Proteas recent Test tour of India,” says Majola.

Zondeki is currently playing for Warwickshire in the England county championship as an overseas professional.

The full list of contracted players for the 2008-09 year is:
Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla, Johan Botha, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Herschelle Gibbs, Paul Harris, Jacques Kallis, Morne Morkel, Andre Nel, Makhaya Ntini, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn, Monde Zondeki.
