Seamer Lonwabo Tsotsobe is determined to use a recent move from the Dolphins to the Lions to relaunch a Test career.

Tsotsobe, who hasn't played Test match cricket since January 2011, will feature in this year's Champions League after swapping the Kwa-Zulu-Natal franchise for the Gauteng outfit.

"Their four-day cricket in particular caught my eye, and seeing that I want to get back into the Test side, it's probably the best franchise to come to," said Tsotsobe.

"I need to get in game time, as much as I can. We all know we get selected based on our performances. If I perform I'll probably get back in the Test side."

The 29-year-old, was the subject of criticism earlier this year, when national coach Russell Domingo questioned the left-armer's fitness levels.

"I have to prove a lot of people wrong. I have to prove to people that I'm fit, and that I can be part of the SA set-up for a long time," he added.

"When people talk negatively about you it somehow puts something in your mind that makes you push harder and try and prove them wrong."

The Lions' CLT20 campaign will get underway against the Brisbane Heat at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad, on Monday.
