Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Vernon Philander caught up with All Blacks and Chiefs player Sonny Bill Willams during the Cricket World Cup in New Zealand.

Philander Instagrammed a picture of him and Williams, saying: "Great catching up with Bro-Sonny. #RUGBY #BOXING #Bro #humblealways pops around to catch up with the boys."

Philander was in action for the Proteas on Sunday in their opening World Cup fixture against neighbours Zimbabwe at Seddon Park in Hamilton. The Cobras paceman picked up two wickets and conceded 30 runs in his eight overs as South Africa won by 62 runs.

The Proteas next fixture is a heavyweight clash with defending champions India in Melbourne on Sunday. India won their opening match too, comfortably beating neighbours Pakistan by 76 runs.
