33 year old Frylinck excited to make his debut

Proteas all-rounder, Robbie Frylinck, will be looking to keep things simple in the upcoming KFC T20 International series against Bangladesh starting at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Thursday. Frylinck has described his debut call-up at 33-years-old as a ‘surprise’, and will be giving this opportunity his best effort after a long journey to the top.

“You get to a stage where you think that maybe it’s not meant to be and it’s not going to happen,” he said at the squad’s first practice in Bloemfontein on Tuesday. “ It doesn’t change what I have done over the last few years for my franchise.

Zimbabwe wobble as Bishoo leads Windies fightback

So far it has been a case of living by the sword, dying by the sword in this first Test between Zimbabwe and the Windies at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. After Zimbabwe had deployed spin bowling so effectively to bundle out the Caribbean side for 219 on the first day – with captain Graeme Cremer leading the charge with a four-wicket haul – the visitors simply returned the favour on Sunday, skittling the home side for 159 just before tea.

Legspinner Devendra Bishoo was the chief tormentor, claiming five wickets, while there were two each for the captain Jason Holder and Kemar Roach.
