South African fast bowler Monde Zondeki has earned a contract with Warwickshire for the 2008 season.
The 25-year-old has played 5 Tests and 11 one-day internationals for South Africa but lacked the consistency to cement his spot in the team. Since then he has improved significantly and will now get the chance to work with legendary South Africa fast bowler Allan Donald.
"I am hugely excited about signing for Warwickshire," said Zondeki. "The opportunity to work under Ashley Giles and bowling coach Allan Donald is one that was too good to refuse. This promises to be a huge year for the Bears and I am looking forward to playing an important role in the upcoming season."
Zondeki claimed 58 first class wickets in 10 matches playing for Cape Cobras and South Africa 'A' last season. He took six 5-wicket hauls and one 10-for.
Warwickshire's director of cricket, Ashley Giles, said: "Monde will add pace and experience to our bowling attack and will be a good addition to the squad. I look forward to welcoming to Edgbaston in March."
