Bowling figures: 5-15
Occasion: Australia in South Africa Test Series - 1st Test
Opponent: Australia
Venue: Newlands, Cape Town
Match result: South Africa won by 8 wickets

After folding for a paltry 96 in their first innings and conceding a near 200-run lead, South Africa needed a miracle to help their case in the first Test at Cape Town. What happened next was indeed unbelievable. The maniac day which saw as many as 23 wickets falling, Vernon Philander's match-turning spell of 7-3-15-5 not only helped the hosts make a splendid comeback but also take a 1-0 lead in the series.
