South Africa spinner Aaron Phangiso has been cleared of an illegal bowling action and can play at the T20 World Cup.
Cricket South Africa says left-armer Phangiso came through a second set of tests on his action on Monday. He was reported for an illegal action in a domestic game last month and his action was ruled illegal after initial tests.
Phangiso, who was already picked in the Proteas squad for the World T20 in India, had to sit out the first two games in a warm-up series against Australia ahead of the World Cup. He made adjustments to his action before being re-tested.
Phangiso said Tuesday in a statement issued by CSA: "It's a huge relief to be cleared."
He won't be considered for Wednesday's final game against Australia.
