South Africa spinner Aaron Phangiso has been reported for a suspect action just weeks ahead of the World Twenty20 in India.
Phangiso was reported while representing Lions in their Momentum One Day Cup semi-final against the Warriors on Wednesday. The 32-year-old took two wickets during the match and his side ended up winning by eight wickets via the Duckworth-Lewis method and subsequently advanced to the final.
Phangiso will now have 14 days to get his action tested and will hope to be given the all clear ahead of South Africa’s World Twenty20 opener against England on March 18.
“Phangiso’s action will now be scrutinised further in accordance with the CSA regulations,” Cricket South Africa said in a statement on Thursday. “He is required to undergo independent analysis by a member of the ICC panel of human movement specialists and is permitted to continue bowling until the results of the testing are known.”
