Frylinck, Mulder called up to Proteas



Hollywoodbets Dolphins and bizhub Highveld Lions allrounders Robbie Frylinck and Wiaan Mulder were called up to the Standard Bank Proteas T20 and one-day squads respectively on Tuesday.

Wayne Parnell has been ruled out of the remainder of the Momentum ODI Series against Bangladesh through injury and has been replaced by 19-year old Mulder in the squad for the remainder of the series.

“The selection of Robbie provides another opportunity to explore our depth in the important allrounder position,” commented CSA National Selection Panel Convener Linda Zondi.

“Apart from his bowling strengths he has a proven record as a finisher with the bat.”

Zondi also explained the rationale behind the decision to rest Imran Tahir. “Imran remains our first-choice spinner in both the limited overs formats but we also need to develop depth in this important area which is why we have given further opportunities to Shamsi and Phangiso.”

Faf du Plessis resumes the captaincy after missing the series in England while the selectors have also decided to rest Kagiso Rabada who has been playing non-stop cricket for the Proteas for an extended period of time.


T20 SQUAD: Faf du Plessis (Multiply Titans, capt), Hashim Amla (WSB Cape Cobras), Farhaan Behardien (Multiply Titans), Quinton de Kock (bizhub Highveld Lions), AB de Villiers (Multiply Titans), JP Duminy (WSB Cape Cobras), Robbie Frylinck (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), Beuran Hendricks (bizhub Highveld Lions), David Miller (VKB Knights), Mangaliso Mosehle (bizhub Highveld Lions), Dane Paterson (WSB Cape Cobras), Aaron Phangiso (bizhub Highveld Lions), Andile Phehlukwayo (Hollywoodbets Dolphins), Tabraiz Shamsi (Multiply Titans).
