Robbie Frylinck's 20-ball 54 powered Dolphins to a five-wicket victory against Titans in the final over of the opening game of the Momentum One Day Cup at SuperSport Park.

Frylinck, who was playing his first List A game since January 2016, came in to bat in the 45th over and strung an unbroken 66-run partnership with Khaya Zondo for the sixth wicket. They took Dolphins from 259 to 325 in 49.3 overs. Frylinck's innings included six fours and three sixes, after he had taken 1 for 66 in ten overs, to earn the Player-of-the-Match award.

The platform for the Dolphins' finish had been built by their top three - all of whom made half-centuries - with Sarel Erwee and Morne van Wyk putting on 117 for the opening wicket. Cody Chetty made a brisk 50, before falling in the 39th over to Albie Morkel, who returned the best figures for Titans with 2 for 36 from seven overs.

Titans had also benefitted from a strong opening stand after losing the toss with Jonathan Vandiar and Henry Davids, who made 51 and 87, adding 153 in 25.5. Dolphins medium-pacer Calvin Savage starred by taking 4 for 60 - the best figures of the match - but couldn't prevent the 46-ball 68 from 20-year-old Rivaldo Moonsamy in the closing overs of the Titans innings.
