Phangiso cleared to play ICC World T20

The South Africa left-arm spinner, Aaron Phangiso, has been cleared to bowl and will be a part of the ICC World T20.

Phangiso had been reported for a suspect action two weeks ago in the semi-final of the Momentum One Day Cup on February 24. He underwent the tests in Pretoria and was found to be exceeding the 15-degree permissible level on all his deliveries. 

After the remedial work with the South Africa coaching staff, Phangiso was re-assessed on Monday and results showed that all his deliveries were within the parameters as laid down by the International (ICC) regulation.


It's a huge relief to be cleared and to have my bowling action passed, it has been a tough and challenging few weeks for me.


Phangiso said. "Many thanks to Cricket South Africa and the Proteas management for their support and for giving me the best opportunity of making it to India for the ICC World T20."

"In saying that, I'd really like to use the next few days ahead of the tournament to gain playing confidence, especially with some of the technical adjustments we have made to my action. My focus is on the World Cup and I'd really like to head into the competition with good form and confidence," said a relieved Aaron Phangiso.

However, Aaron Phangiso won't be playing in the final T20 against Australia.
