Two international players represented by One World of Sport recently signed new long-term sponsorship deals with two global giants of the cricket equipment market.
Proteas all-rounder Vernon Philander will play with SS Ton until at least December 2019. Philander will be the only current South African international player sponsored by SS Ton and he will be supported directly out of Meerut, India by the brand’s holding company, Sareen Sports Industries.
Philander first major international series with his new sponsors was the recently completed Test series against India. He promptly repaid SS Ton by being announced as the Player of the Series.

When with Sussex from April to September, Van Zyl will be supported by the brand’s international head office in England. Gray Nicolls South Africa will look after him during the southern summer.
