Proteas won't underestimate Tigers in T20s

Bloemfontein - The Proteas, despite having thrashed Bangladesh in the recently-completed Test and ODI series, will not be underestimating the Tigers when they play in two T20Is on Thursday and Sunday. 

That is the view of newcomer Robbie Frylinck, who at 33 has played enough T20 cricket to know that anything can happen in the format. 

The big-hitting allrounder has become a T20 specialist for the Dolphins, and while he has never been tested on the international stage, he knows that the Bangladeshis are a dangerous side in the format. 

"Growing up and playing as much cricket as we do, you respect every opponent," Frylinck told media in Bloemfontein ahead of the first T20I.

"As soon as you write them off that's when they come back and sting you.

"We definitely won't be writing them off, regardless of what has happened in the Test matches or ODIs. Bangladesh are a strong T20 side. They play all over the world in various competitions and they are a team to be respected.

"T20 is a different animal on its own and I'm sure the guys will come in and give it 200%. It would obviously be nice to get another whitewash, but we're not looking that far ahead."

Play on Thursday will start at 18:00.
