Could feel my intensity was missed- Vernon Philander

Vernon, Philander labeled his Oval Test ordeal as ‘really bad’ after having played the third Test with a stomach illness in which South Africa lost to England by 239 runs.
“It was more draining from a fluid point of view because I couldn’t really keep anything down. So yeah, it was really bad,” Philander said. He also recollected how bowling in parts compounded his illness during the second day of the Test match.
“I think it probably got a lot worse having to bowl, and having obviously lost quite a lot of fluids top and the bottom, but that night in hospital obviously being in a drip revitalised me, so to speak. But then in the morning it just came out again.”
