Aaron Phangiso of the Highveld Lions has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the Momentum One-Day Cup match against the Warriors at Wanderers, Johannesburg, on 24 February 2016. Phangiso’s action will now be scrutinised further in accordance with the CSA Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions. 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.
This has compounded Phangiso’s problems, after coming under fire for appearing to mock-snort cocaine during one of South Africa’s T20 internationals against England. Phangiso’s role model credentials were called into question. The Proteas won that series 2-0.
