Durban - Dolphins Chief Executive Officer Pete de Wet has confirmed that all-rounder Robbie Frylinck has been placed under suspension pending the completion of a disciplinary process instituted against the player.

It is alleged that Frylinck was involved in an incident with another Dolphins player following the team's return to Durban last Sunday from a match in Cape Town.

Frylinck's appearance before the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union's disciplinary committee is to answer to a charge of alleged assault of a fellow player.

It is alleged that an argument developed in the car which was transporting the players to the airport after the provincial match ended a day before its scheduled finish.

According to Afrikaans newspaper, Rapport, Frylinck punched team-mate Ayavuya Myoli.

The formal disciplinary hearing which gets underway next week was preceded by the formulation of charges and the collection of statements from different parties. KZN Cricket Union has promised to ensure a speedy and thorough finalisation of the disciplinary hearing.

De Wet stressed that it was imperative for the dignity of all the players involved to allow the disciplinary process to be completed, and warned against unsubstantiated rumours and jumping to conclusions until the outcome of the hearing is made public.
