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.
