Aaron Mpho Phangiso

Aaron Phangiso produced a stunning display for the bizhub Highveld Lions to emerge as the top spin bowler, both as wicket taker and economical performer, in the 2012 edition of the Champions League T20. He played a key role in getting the Lions through to the final.

He is also an outstanding fielder and useful lower-order batsman who has developed his game enormously during the last few seasons of franchise cricket.

He first came to light during the South Africa under-19 unbeaten tour of England in 2003 in the company of several future Proteas – Imraan Khan, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, AB de Villiers and Vernon Philander.

He made his T20 debut for the Proteas against New Zealand at the end of 2012 and his ODI debut against the same opponents at the start of 2013.
