Philander made his ODI debut on his 22nd birthday, against Ireland at Belfast. He took 4 for 12, a match-winning performance.

Philander was chosen for the emerging players tournament in Australia, and took 3 for 30, as well as hitting 59 off 50 balls in the final against New Zealand A. South Africa would go on to win the tournament. Philander was one of Middlesex CCC's overseas players for the 2008 English Domestic season.

On 9 November 2011, Philander made his Test debut against Australia, and was awarded Man of the Match after taking 5-15 in Australia's second innings, in which Australia was dismissed for 47, that country's lowest completed test innings total since 1902. He was also Man of the Series, with 14 wickets at 13.92 and two five-wicket hauls across the two tests. The following month he took five wickets in each innings in the first test of South Africa's home series against Sri Lanka. He became the fifth player in history to take five wickets in an innings in each of his first three tests. These performances led to him being awarded a national contract by Cricket South Africa in January 2012.
