Cape Town - South Africa's Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula has welcomed the lifting of Aaron Phangiso’s suspension by The Independent Assessment.

The Independent Assessment found that Phangiso’s action for all deliveries is within the parameters laid down by the ICC regulations after conducting re-assessments on his bowling action.

On March 1 Mbalula raised concerns over the suspension and withdrawal of Phangiso from the first two T20 Internationals against Australia. 

“I thank the leadership and administrators of Cricket South Africa (CSA) for prioritising this matter and ensuring it came to finality before the ICC World Twenty20. I raised my concerns and called upon the leadership and administrators of CSA to act having full confidence in Aaron Pangiso. Aaron Phangiso can now focus on participating in the World Cup, and by his own words, gaining confidence with the adjustments made on his technique. I applaud him for his patience and discipline.” Minister Fikile Mbalula said.
