Joburg Super Kings’ left-arm spinner and wild-card signing, Aaron Phangiso has been suspended from bowling in the ongoing season of the SA20 league, after his action was suspected during the side’s clash against Pretoria Capitals.
“Joburg Super Kings’ left-arm spinner, Aaron Phangiso, has been suspended from bowling in the Betway SA20 after the Independent Bowling Action Panel confirmed his bowling action does not conform to the regulations of a legal bowling action as defined by the International Cricket Council (ICC),” read the statement from SA20.
“The panel submitted their final report on 23 January, as constituted under the Betway SA20 Suspect Bowling Action Policy. The report confirmed that Phangiso bowled with a non-compliant bowling action during the match between Joburg Super Kings and Pretoria Capitals on 17 January at the Wanderers in Johannesburg,” it added.
The statement also added that the left-arm spinner has been suspended with immediate action, starting from January 23.
“He is subsequently suspended from bowling in Betway SA20 matches going forward as of 23 January.”
“The Joburg Super Kings have requested to have Mr Phangiso’s action tested under laboratory conditions at an ICC Accredited Centre. If the ICC testing shows that his action is legal, he will be allowed to continue bowling.”
