South African pacer Wayne Parnell is set to miss out on his team’s World T20 encounter against Netherlands on Thursday since he has been summoned to appear in a Mumbai court in a drug related case.

Parnell allegedly tested positive for recreational drugs after the police conducted a raid on a rave party in Mumbai in 2012 while Parnell was representing the Pune Warriors India (PWI) in the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League.

Parnell is among the 35 wanted foreign nationals and Independent Online (IOL) has reported that Parnell is being accompanied to Mumbai by his manager Donne Commins and Mumbai-based lawyer Makrand Narwekar.

The summon fron the court is a blow to South African’s chances after the Proteas have got off to a mixed start in the ongoing World T20 with one win and one defeat in their opening two games.

“Wayne Parnell has been summoned to appear before the Mumbai court, purely for procedural purposes related to the court’s ongoing administration of the drug related case,” Commins told a South African daily Cape Times.

“We understand that there will be no substantive inquires made of him and his bail is likely to be extended. While respecting the Indian judiciary system, Wayne continues to deny the allegations,” he added.

Parnell was granted bail by a Mumbai court last year after he surrendered before the court on charges of testing positive for recreational drugs.

Parnell and then Pune Warriors India teammate Rahul Sharma were both tested positive for drugs at a rave party in Mumbai’s suburban Juhu.
