Philander sets sight on 2015
Vernon Philander says making the national side for the 2015 Cricket World Cup is his long-term goal.
CAPE TOWN - Making the national side for the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup is a long-term goal, Proteas paceman Vernon Philander told EWN Sport on Friday.
Philander was recalled to the one-day international (ODI) squad for the upcoming series against Pakistan.
But he says for now he has to focus on cementing his place in the side.
"It will be great if I can go to the World Cup, but it is work in progress. I also need to perform to get there. I would love to be there so hopefully I can put in the performance to justify my spot in the side."
"I would like to play all the formats. It's a great call up so hopefully I can go out and make it count. I'm excited and looking forward to the challenge," Philander says.
