At 20 years old, he gave his first signature when he used to play for Cape Cobras.

He made his cricket debut on his 22nd birthday with a blast as he took 4/42 out of an ODI against Ireland in Belfast in 2007.

It took him around 4 years to make into South Africa’s Test playing XI, and when he made it against Australia, where he without any help crushed the Australian batting line-up by taking his initial 5-wicket pull.

In 2012, he won the SA Sportsman of the Year Award.

In 2013, he beat his partner Dale Steyn to turn into the No.1 in the ICC Test bowlers positioning.

That year, he established ‘Vernon Philander Foundation’, and furthermore does a sweeping drive each winter.

He himself concedes that his bowling style suits the new ball.

When he is off the cricket field, he can be seen playing golf more than more often than not.

He is a devoted canine darling.
