Chittagong Vikings Robbie Frylinck said on Saturday that he is convinced that it was a no-ball in the last over that was denied by the umpires during their nail-biting encounter against Khulna Titans at SBNS on Saturday.

Chittagong Vikings looked to win it with ease when Yasir Ali and Mushfiqur Rahim were batting with assured hand before Khulna bowlers came back in style to dismiss Yasir and Sikandar Raza in quick succession.

Mushfiqur was still there to give the side hopes but he perished to loose shot, leaving the side in a precarious 121 for six.

Pakistan’s Junaid Khan, playing his first BPL game this season, bowled an excellent 19th over to Robbie Frylinck, conceding just 4 runs and leaving Chittagong needing 19 off the last over.

Keeping the trust on Ariful Haque’s slower, Mahmudullah handed him to defend the total which was by any means a tough job in slow Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium wicket.

Ariful was hit for six by youngster Nayeem  Hasan in the second delivery of the over after he had missed the first one.  Nayeem went for the big one again and was holed out as it was left to Frylinck, who had crossed over to the other end, to win the match.

Frylinck proceeded to dispatch the fourth delivery over the bowler’s head for six before he punished a poor waist-high full toss, one that could easily have been called a no-ball, for six over square leg fence.  

‘I was still convinced that was a no-ball. But we didn’t get like that. The ball came nicely that slow ball I missed and that obviously gets us in super over.

‘I was getting judged by the team on my side and they obviously have seen it in TV and saw the replay and they all say it was well above. So I asked the umpires to have at least a check. They said that was not in their rules but I can’t afford to say that it was little unfair. But in the super over, there was a full-toss which was probably quite close as well but the umpires made the same decision for both sides and you have to back the umpires,’’ he said.
