South Africa all-rounder Vernon Philander retired from international cricket on Monday. He played his last Test match against England. Philander, who made his Test debut in 2011, has played 64 Tests for South Africa.
However, Philander's team suffered a loss in their last match. In the second innings he bowled only 1.3 overs and in the second over he had to go out due to injury. In his last Test, he could not win South Africa.
England defeated South Africa by 191 runs in the fourth Test to win the four-match Test series 3–1. Philander was awarded a token after the match. The ICC also tweeted about her career record, posting her photo.
It is worth noting that Philander had said at the beginning of the series that this would be the last series of his career and he would say goodbye to international cricket. The 34-year-old Philander has played 64 Tests, 30 One-Day and seven T20 Internationals in his career.
