Phangiso reported for illegal bowling action

News

South Africa spinner Aaron Phangiso has been reported for an illegal bowling action by Cricket South Africa, but can continue bowling for the Lions until the results of testing have been released.

Phangiso, who is part of the Proteas' World Twenty20 squad, was reported by the umpire while playing for the Lions against the Warriors in South Africa's one-day competition on Wednesday.

A CSA media release read: "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."

It has not been a good year so far for Phangiso in terms of media attention, after news broke that he had been thrown off a plane for drunken behaviour late last year. He was also recently caught on camera mimicking a 'sniffing cocaine' action.
