Frylinck & Van Wyk pull off memorable Paarl win
Paarl - A brilliant hundred from Morné van Wyk, and two consecutive sixes
off the final two deliveries of the match from Rob Frylinck helped the
Hollywoodbets Dolphins defeat the WSB Cape Cobras by three wickets in the
Momentum One Day Cup in Paarl on Wednesday.
Morné van Wyk turned back the clock once again as he provided the spine of
the Dolphins' record run chase at Eurolux Boland Park while the
cool-headed Frylinck proved that he is one of the best finishers in South

The Cobras were 105/3 with captain JP Duminy and the young Jason Smith at
the wicket. The pair gave their side impressive impetus as they added 50
runs for the fourth wicket.
Smith became Frylinck’s second victim for 16 as his captain continued to

Frylinck was the pick of the Dolphins bowlers with figures of 3/44 in 10
overs while Calvin Savage, Sibz Makhanya and Prenelan Subrayen all took
one wicket each.
The chase from the men from Durban couldn't have started better with
openers Morné van Wyk and Sarel Erwee putting on a confident, Boland Park
record, 161 for the first wicket.
Erwee was run out for a skillful 80 from 69 deliveries, but it was the
ever-green Van Wyk who notched up his 24th List A hundred.
Following the loss of Erwee Van Wyk was circumspect as he regrouped and
brought up his century off 130 balls before a chipped a George Linde
delivery to point for a crucial 107.
Senuran Muthusamy looked accomplished when he put together 35 from 38
balls before the Dolphins lost their way when he was bowled by Wayne
Parnell and captain Khaya Zondo followed in the same over for a duck.
The Dolphins were teetering at 240/4 with seven overs to go in the chase.
It got more difficult as the Cobras continued to keep it tight and the
Dolphins were restricted to 277/6 with 13 runs required off the final six

Adams deliveries out of the ground to give his side a memorable victory.
