Aaron Phangiso has been cleared to bowl after getting his action re-tested  •  SA20

Aaron Phangiso, the South Africa and Joburg Super Kings' left-arm spinner has had his bowling action cleared following a re-test, the SA20 league announced via a press release. The league has also lifted the suspension previously imposed upon the spinner.
Phangiso was reported for a suspect bowling action during Super Kings' game against Pretoria Capitals on January 17 in the inaugural SA20. He was deemed to have a non-compliant action after undergoing a number of laboratory tests and subsequently suspended from bowling in the league.
The 39-year-old has since undergone bowling action remodelling and remedial work under the guidance of CSA head of High Performance, Vincent Barnes. He undertook a test at an ICC Accredited Testing Centre at the University of Pretoria, which "noted an improvement in his action, and cleared the way for him to return to bowling." The Independent Assessment report on Phangiso's bowling action was presented to SA20's Independent Expert Panel, which consisted of Zama Ndamane, Gerrie Pienaar, Russell Domingo and Vernon Philander.
Phangiso played six matches at the SA20, picking ten wickets - including two four-wicket hauls - and finishing as the second-highest wicket-taker for his team. Super Kings made it to the semi-final of the tournament, where they were beaten by eventual winners Sunrisers Eastern Cape by 14 runs.
This was the second time in his career that Phangiso's action was deemed illegal. He was first reported during Lions' win against Warriors in the semi-final of the Momentum One-Day Cup in 2016 and was cleared after undergoing remedial work on his action.
Phangiso has played 21 ODIs and 16 T20Is for South Africa and last donned the national jersey in a T20I against India in 2016.
