28 Mar Aaron Phangiso’s bowling action cleared
Bowler re-tested action at ICC Accredited Testing Centre following suspension
Tuesday, 28 March 2023: Joburg Super Kings (JSK) left-arm spinner, Aaron Phangiso, undertook a re-test of his bowling action at an ICC Accredited Testing Centre at the University of Pretoria, which noted an improvement in his action, and cleared the way for him to return to bowling.
As a result thereof, the Betway SA20 League’s Independent Expert Panel has confirmed they have lifted the suspension previously imposed upon him.
Phangiso has, since being first reported, been undergoing bowling action remodelling and remedial work with the support of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Head of High Performance, Vincent Barnes.
The Independent Assessment Report on his bowling action was carried out by Dr Helen Bayne and her team on 20 March 2023 and the findings presented to the Independent Expert Panel on 25 March 2023.
Betway SA20 wishes to thank all parties – CSA, the South Africa Cricketers’ Association, Northerns Cricket, JSK, the Independent Expert Panel and Dr Bayne for the professional manner in which the matter was handled and for the resources contributed.
The Independent Expert Panel is made up of Zama Ndamane, Gerrie Pienaar, Russell Domingo (in the place of Barnes) and Vernon Philander.
