International Cricket Council (ICC) on 1 March 2016 banned South Africa left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso from bowling. He was banned after his bowling action, which exceeded 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the regulations, was found illegal.
Phangiso was reported by umpires after helping Highveld Lions reach the final of South Africa's domestic 50-over competition. He was reported for suspect action on 25 February 2016 while playing for Highveld Lions against Warriors at Wanderers.
The tests were conducted by an ICC accredited laboratory at the University of Pretoria's High-Performance Centre.
Phangiso, 32, is in the Proteas squad for World T20 that is scheduled to start from 8 March 2016 in India.
He will be able to play the T20 World Cup if he passes a re-test on 7 March 2016. Till then, he will remain with spin bowling Coach Claude Henderson and Cricket South Africa high performance manager Vinnie Barnes to try to remedy his action.
