Joburg Super Kings spinner Aaron Phangiso has been suspended from bowling in the SA20 league.
This came after the Independent Bowling Action Panel – consisting of Zama Ndamane, Vincent Barnes and Vernon Philander – confirmed Phangiso’s bowling action does not conform to the regulations of a legal bowling action as defined by the ICC.
The panel submitted its final report on 23 January, as constituted under the SA20 Suspect Bowling Action Policy.
The report confirmed that Phangiso bowled with a non-compliant bowling action during the match between the Joburg Super Kings and Pretoria Capitals on 17 January at the Wanderers.
The 39-year-old took 4-32 in his team’s six-run win.
Phangiso is subsequently suspended from bowling in SA20 matches going forward as of 23 January.
The Super Kings have requested to have Phangiso’s action tested under laboratory conditions at an ICC-accredited centre.
If the ICC testing shows that his action is legal, he will be allowed to continue bowling.
