S Africa spin­ner Phangiso cleared ahead of World T20

The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

Left-arm slow bowler Aaron Phangiso will travel with the South African team to the ICC World T20 on Thurs­day af­ter his bowl­ing ac­tion was cleared fol­low­ing a se­cond in­de­pen­dent as­sess­ment.

Cricket South Africa an­nounced late on Tues­day that Phangiso's ac­tion for all de­liv­er­ies had been found to fall within the pa­ram­e­ters of in­ter­na­tional reg­u­la­tions.

The new as­sess­ment af­ter tests on Mon­day came a week af­ter it was an­nounced that he had been banned from bowl­ing in do­mes­tic cricket af­ter all his vari­a­tions had been found to ex­ceed the 15 de­grees of tol­er­ance al­lowed.

The first tests were con­ducted on Fe­bru­ary 27. Be­fore un­der­go­ing the lat­est tests, Phangiso worked with South African spin bowl­ing coach Claude Hen­der­son and high per­for­mance man­ager Vin­cent Barnes in an ef­fort to cor­rect his ac­tion.

South African coach Rus­sell Domingo said that al­though Phangiso had been cleared, he would not play in the third and fi­nal T20 in­ter­na­tional against Aus­tralia at New­lands on Wed­nes­day, South Africa's last match be­fore leav­ing for In­dia on Thurs­day. "While it is tempt­ing to play him, both Aaron and I feel it's best that he takes a lit­tle more time to work on and gain con­fi­dence with his new ad­just­ments," said Domingo.
