Philander was appointed as the Pakistan bowling consultant ahead of the T20 World Cup, of which the national side reached the semi-finals before ending their campaign with a loss against eventual winners Australia.

Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden was also brought in along the ex-South African pacer as the batting consultant.
