South Africa and Joburg Super Kings' left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso has been reported for a suspect bowling action in the ongoing SA20. The match officials reported Phangiso during Super Kings' match against Pretoria Capitals on Tuesday.
As per the tournament's 'Suspected Illegal Bowling Action' guideline, the issue will be passed on to the Bowling Action Panel, which would judge the matter and come up with a conclusion. The panel consists of match referee representative Gerrie Pienaar, former South Africa seamer Vernon Philander, and CSA's High Performance Manager Vincent Barnes.
The panel has seven days to review the video footage available from the concerned game, before arriving at the next step. However, Phangiso can continue to bowl for Super Kings in the intervening period.
This is the second time in his career that Phangiso has been reported for a suspect bowling action. He was first reported during Lions' win against Warriors in the semi-final of the Momentum One Day Cup in 2016, but was cleared after undergoing remedial work on his action.
Playing against Capitals in Johannesburg, Phangiso picked up a match-winning 4 for 32, as Super Kings won a tight game by six runs and secured two points. All four of his wickets came in a period of collapse for Capitals, who lost 4 for 57 in just more than seven overs after an attacking start to their chase of 169.
The two teams met again the day after - this time in Centurion - only for Capitals to hunt down 123 with six wickets and seven overs remaining. Batting at No. 10, Phangiso struck a useful cameo of 19 from 10 balls in the match, but went wicketless with the ball.
Phangiso, 38, has played 21 ODIs and 16 T20Is for South Africa, the last of which was against India in Cape Town in February 2018.
