Vernon Philander averages 21.80 with the ball in first-class cricket

Sussex all-rounder Vernon Philander will miss two to three weeks after suffering a groin injury against Kent.

Philander, who signed for Sussex in December, will now be unavailable for the Sharks in their One-Day Cup games.

The 31-year-old South Africa international is expected back for four County Championship games before his contract ends in the middle of June.

He scored 21 runs and failed to take a wicket as Sussex lost their season opener to Kent by 226 runs.
