This feels more like a Cinderace team with Zoroark slapped on than a Zoroark team, to be honest.  Zoroark is very niche and really needs a lot of tools in order to thrive, and defiant is clearly not one of them (although it is very good if you want to stick to Cinderace, but a focus sash bisharp is usually the best choice because of assurance to combo with Cinderace being so fast and sucker punch to get one last hit off). I've attached a video of Aaron Zheng featuring a Zoroark team, his videos are great for getting inspiration, even if this one is from an old format. Something like Whimsicott, with tailwind and fake tears, as well as other special attackers like Porygon-Z to take advantage of Whimsicott's support, are generally what you're looking for.
