Cape Town - Robbie Frylinck again played a key role with successive sixes in the final over helping the Dolphins secure a tie against the Knights in their One-Day Cup clash at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

The Proteas all-rounder, who blasted twin sixes to overcome the Cape Cobras in Paarl on Wednesday, hit a run-a-ball 33, to tie the scores.

But he was one of two wickets that fell from the final two balls of the match as the visitors replied to the 233/9 set by the hosts by posting the exact same score.

It was a remarkable end to the game and left the Knights with a second tie this season and also without a win after five rounds of action.

They had earlier won the toss and opted to bat first, with Rudi Second (66 of 89 balls, 5 fours) and Patrick Kruger (59 off 68 balls, 5 fours, 1 six) both hitting half-centuries.

Andile Phehlukwayo was the pick of the bowlers with three for 49.

Despite Senuran Muthusamy striking 68 (89 balls, 5 fours, 2 sixes), the Dolphins lost wickets at regular intervals, and at 181 for seven, appeared destined for defeat.

But Frylinck and Prenelan Subrayen (21) had other ideas, putting on a 52-run eighth-wicket stand that took them to the brink.

There were 14 needed in the final over and Frylinck levelled the scores by smashing Duanne Olivier (3/52) for two sixes off the second and third balls, leaving two to get from three.

But the fast bowler got rid of both batsmen, Subrayen for obstructing the field, as the Knights earned a share of the points.

The Dolphins now top the log on 21 points followed by the Titans on 19 and the Cape Cobras on 18. All three teams have played six matches.
