• Phangiso’s action scrutinised

    South African spinner Aaron Phangiso has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the One-Day Cup eliminator match against the Warriors at the Wanderers on Wednesday.

    Phangiso’s action will now be scrutinised further in accordance with the CSA Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.

    He is required to undergo independent analysis by a member of the ICC Panel of Human Movement Specialists and is permitted to continue bowling until the results of the testing are known.

    Phangiso is a member of South Africa’s World T20 squad but it is unclear at this stage how this setback will affect his participation.

    Earlier this week Phangiso was reprimanded by Cricket South Africa after he pretended to snort something on television during the second T20 against England on Sunday.

    He was seen performing the impression while sitting in the dugout during England’s second T20 International against South Africa.

    Phangiso was ‘sanctioned’ by CSA last month after being thrown off a flight for being intoxicated in October last year.
