The left-arm spinner’s action has been reported for the second time in his career.
Aaron Phangiso, a left-arm spinner for the Joburg Super Kings of South Africa, has been reported for questionable bowling technique during the current SA20. During Tuesday’s play between the Super Kings and the Pretoria Capitals, the match officials reported Phangiso.
The Bowling Action Panel will review the situation and make a determination in accordance with the tournament’s “Suspected Illegal Bowling Action” policy. Gerrie Pienaar, a match referee representative, Vernon Philander, a former South African seamer, and Vincent Barnes, the CSA’s high-performance manager, make up the panel.
Before moving on to the next step, the panel has seven days to examine the video footage from the relevant game that is available. Phangiso can still bowl for Joburg Super Kings during this time, though.
Phangiso has been reported for questionable bowling action twice in his career. He was originally brought to light during the Lions’ victory against the Warriors in the Momentum One Day Cup semifinal in 2016, however, after undergoing corrective measures, he was found not guilty.
Phangiso scored a match-winning 4 for 32 against the Pretoria Capitals in Johannesburg, helping Joburg Super Kings win a close game by six runs and earn two points. All four of his dismissals occurred during a slump for the Capitals, who lost 4 for 57 in just over seven overs following an aggressive start to their 169-run chase.
The following day, the two teams faced off again, this time at Centurion, with Capitals managing to chase down 123 with six wickets and seven overs left. Phangiso failed to pick up a wicket while bowling while scoring a decent cameo of 19 from 10 balls when batting at No. 10 in the game.
