After 64 Test matches, Vernon Philander this week bid farewell to international cricket. Naturally a lot of Vernon’s career records and statistics have been dished up lately. Just remember this one and savour it for a moment: Of all the bowlers who have played Test cricket since Vernon made his debut in November 2011 and have taken more than 150 wickets, no one has a better average – 22.32. In his era Vernon Philander was peerless!
One World of Sport is proud and privileged to have been part of Vernon’s journey every step of the way. We wish you and your family everything of the very best for the future!
