Aaron Phangiso, South Africa and Joburg Super Kings' left-arm spinner, has been suspended from bowling in the ongoing SA20 with immediate effect due to an illegal bowling action. The Independent Bowling Action Panel on Tuesday confirmed that his action didn't adhere to the regulations laid down by the ICC.
The panel, consisting of match referee representative Gerrie Pienaar, former South Africa seamer Vernon Philander, and CSA's High Performance Manager Vincent Barnes, submitted their final report on Monday after they were asked to judge the matter.
Phangiso was reported by the match officials during Super Kings' match against Pretoria Capitals on January 17.
However, according to a media release on Tuesday, Super Kings have requested to have Phangiso's action tested under laboratory conditions at an ICC-accredited centre. If the governing body's testing shows that his action is legal, he will be allowed to resume bowling.
Phangiso has taken ten wickets in six matches - including two four-wicket hauls - for Super Kings at the SA20 so far. His last game for them came against Sunrisers Eastern Cape on Saturday, where figures of 4 for 20 earned his side a win, and Phangiso a Player-of-the-Match award. With three wins in six games, Super Kings are currently occupying the fifth spot in the six-team competition.
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.
Phangiso, 39, has played 21 ODIs and 16 T20Is for South Africa, the last of which came against India in Cape Town in February 2018.
