Frylinck keeps going in BPL

Even if Chittagong Vikings’ South Africa recruit all-rounder Robert Frylinck is happy for his heroics behind the nerve-wracking victory against Khulna Titans, he is surprised at the decision of the umpires not to give it a no-ball.

Frylinck thinks that the match would not roll onto the super over if the ball could be called a no-ball.

“I was still convinced that was a no-ball. But we didn’t get like that. The ball came nicely that slow ball I missed and that obviously gets us in super over,” said Robert Frylinck.

“I was getting judged by the team on my side and they obviously have seen it in TV and saw the replay and they all say it was well above. So I asked the umpires to have at least a check. They said that was not in their rules but I can’t afford to say that it was little unfair,” Frylink told media.

“But in the super over, there was a full-toss which was probably quite close as well but the umpires made the same decision for both sides and you have to back the umpires,” he added.

South African-born all-rounder said that they were happy to chase the score of 150 set by Khulna Titans, who were out to break their losing streak as they are yet to triumph any match out of their four outings.

“We were happy to chase 150,” he said.

“We didn’t get a best start but we had a partnership going but we became little bit slow in the middle to go the run-rate a bit higher and knowing they got world class bowlers coming in,” he also said.

“You can’t sometimes leave too much for the late and Junaid, Carlos Brathwaite, those guys are world class bowlers so I thought we had the control but fell away a bit in the late. And I should have won it at the end as well and should not wait for the super over. At the end, I was exciting for everybody,” he added.

When asked about his personal performance, Frylinck said that it kept going in the BPL Twenty20 League in Bangladesh superbly.

‘Touch wood, hopefully it kept going nicely,” he replied.

“But I will keep saying it’s not me and how I am doing, I am happy team got two win in three matches. We almost made it three out of three but I am just happy to contribute. Someday my day, but may be seven days it would be another’s day. That’s important for the team,” he also said.

“At the moment it’s going well for me and so I will take the luck and next game it might be someone else,” he added.

“‘It was a really good game, I think. Unfortunately someone had to loss and I thought we’ve come back very nicely after they got 30 in first two overs and we got them in for 122 or like this in last 18 overs.”

“The bowlers bowled really really well. Nayeem bowled fantastic spell and other two quicks, Khaleed and Rahi bowled really nicely.”
