Durban - A whirlwind few weeks for Dolphins all-rounder Rob
Frylinck which started with the birth of his first child last week has ended
with a call up to the Trinbago Knight Riders for the upcoming Caribbean Premier
Frylinck will fly out to the Caribbean island on Saturday and says that this
opportunity was something that he was never going to be able to pass up.
“I have been waiting for something like this for ages,” an excited Frylinck
“I have put in some good performances in limited overs cricket for a while and
when I got the call up I was quick to take the opportunity.”
Frylinck, who had a stint in the Indian Premier League with the Delhi
Daredevils, is looking forward to rubbing shoulders with cricketers from other
“To be involved in an international tournament is one of the most exciting
things for me and to play and mix with some of the best players in the world
will be great for me.
“When you mix with these sorts of players your game can only improve and
hopefully I can bring that back to the Dolphins before the start of next
season,” he added.
Frylinck will be rubbing shoulders with former Dolphins team mate Dwayne Bravo
as well as New Zealand super star Brendon McCullum and current Kiwi big-hitter
The Caribbean will also prove a new experience for the 32-year-old Frylinck as
he heads to the islands for the first time.
“It’s always exciting when you go to a new place and with all of this happening
so quickly it still hasn’t quite sunk in!”
Dolphins coach Grant Morgan was full of praise for his all-rounder when talking
about this new venture for Frylinck.
“I am really happy for Rob, he definitely deserves this!” Morgan commented.
“He’s been an absolute war horse for us and played every game of last season
and produced some great moments for us – he’s a real match winner.”
Frylinck’s consistent performances for the Dolphins over the past twelve months
has been paramount in their ability to challenge for trophies and Morgan
believes that he is one player that might have got a look in for higher
“He is going to learn a lot from this trip and with a busy season ahead of him
and the rest of the team the experience that he is going to return with will be
invaluable,” Morgan added.
