The left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso has had his action cleared and now he is all set and ready to participate in T20 world cup 2016 here in India. The left arm spinner was reported for a suspect action in a List A domestic game on 24 February 2016. After the report of suspect action, he went for testing straightaway and his action was declared illegal as he was exceeding the 15-degree limit. But he cleared the test in the second attempt which was conducted yesterday and this cleared his way to participate in the World Cup.
For this, he was well supported by the staff of his team as they put down extra efforts to work on the remodelled action. His efforts paid fruits to him as now he is allowed to bowl in the international circuit. Now his deliveries are legal and a ban on him has been lifted.
He will not participate in the Third T20 match between South Africa and Australia as he needs some time and practice to work on his remodelled action. He will cop up with little difficulties and problems during this time.
Phangiso has played 9 T20I matches till now and has taken 13 wickets at an economy rate of 8.11. He will be effective in these conditions as Indian pitches support the spinners quite well. He along with Imran Tahir will have the responsibility to trap the batsmen in their spin web to have a successful campaign.
South Africa will kick off their campaign against the England side on March 18 in Mumbai but before that they will play two warm matches against India followed by another warm-up match against one of the states of India.
South Africa has never won T20 World Cup.
