New Delhi, Feb 2 (IANS) Joburg Super Kings’ left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso underwent an ICC accredited bowling action test at the University of Pretoria on January 27. The test, overseen by ICC accredited practitioner Helen Bayne, confirmed that Phangiso had bowled with a non-compliant action as identified by the SA20 independent bowling action panel.
