Dolphins all-rounder Robbie Frylinck was ecstatic with his maiden RamSlam T20 Challenge hat trick against the Warriors at St George’s Park on Sunday.
Frylinck, who was recently capped by the Proteas in T20 international cricket after years of yeoman service for the Dolphins, claimed only the third hat trick in the history of domestic franchise T20 cricket.
Former Titans paceman Ethy Mbhalati claimed the first T20 hat trick, while Cobras swing bowler Charl Langeveldt has the other.
Frylinck’s first victim was the explosive Christiaan Jonker. The Warriors right-hander was in a rampant mood on Sunday, but edged behind the first ball of the 19th over to wicket-keeper Dane Vilas, who took a good diving one-handed catch to this right.
The umpires called for a television referral, which confirmed it was a clean dismissal.
