South African  seamer, Vernon Philander insisted that results were all that mattered after he starred with the ball to leave Sri Lanka on the ropes after two days of the second Sunfoil Test at PPC Newlands in Cape Town on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old took 4/27 to move past 150 Test wickets in his 39th match for South Africa as the tourists were bundled out for 110 in 43 overs, before the hosts extended their lead to 317 with all 10 second wickets intact.
