Former Pakistan bowling consultant Vernon Philander thanked the Men in Green and the team’s management for their love and encouragement in an Urdu tweet on Tuesday.
Vernon Philander had left Bangladesh for his homeland, South Africa, a few days earlier than planned due to the emergence of the new coronavirus variant, Omicron, in his country.
He described his two-month stint with the Pakistan cricket team as “amazing.” He stated that all of the players gave the best response during training and thanked the management for their encouragement.
“Good luck with the rest of the tour, and keep up the great work that you’ve all been doing,” Philander said.
