Aaron Phangiso Biography


Aaron Phangiso is a South African cricketer, born on 12 January 1984 in Ga-Rankuwa, South Africa. His is a right-hand batsman and a slow left arm orthodox spinner. He has a brilliant economy rate which makes him a valuable limited overs player, even though his bowling variations are nothing out of the box.


Debut


After putting impressive display in the 2012 Champions League for Lions, Phangiso was included in South Africa squad for T20s and made his T20 debut against New Zealand in Buffalo Park.


It was a tepid performance as he conceded runs and went wicketless. His ODI debut came in the same tour against New Zealand.


Rise to Glory


Phangiso burst into the spotlight and in the selectors radar after his heroics for Lions in 2012 Champions Trophy.


Phangiso hasn’t had any flashy displays at international level as he is more of a silent performer. His economy rate is a highly impressive 4.58 in ODIs.


His role for national team is limited due to Imran Tahir being the first-choice specialist spinner. His record of 20 wickets in 15 T20 internationals justifies his calibre and makes him an able replacement of Tahir.


Low Points


Despite being the crucial member of Lions in limited over formats, Phangiso is overlooked for alternatives in the longer formats. While he is good in restricting runs, lack of variations restricts his wicket taking abilities.


He was suspended from bowling in domestic level for his uncanny bowling action. He rectified his action and was cleared within a week.


Club Career


Phangiso joined Titans (then called Northerns) in 2004. After playing there for five years, he joined Highveld Lions. He has consistently performed well for the Lions. He was especially good in the 2012 Champions League. He took 10 wickets in the tournament and helped Lions reach the finals where they lost to Sydney Sixers.


In August 2017, Phangiso was included in the Bloem City Blazers squad for the inaugural Global T20 League (South Africa’s franchise-based league). However, in October 2017, Cricket South Africa postponed the tournament until November 2018.
