I need to clarify the below two things about the former South African Test Captain Hashim Amla.

  • He is being fined 500$ per month for not wearing Castle Logo in his jersey.
  • He was fasting during his triple century against England.

I want to know whether these two things are true or not. I need reliable references in the answer, since different sites reveal different things about the above.

  • Hashim Amla pays a fine for not wearing Castle logo: FALSE

Reference: CSA's official Facebook page confirms this here.

CSA comment on Hashim Amla's fine.

  • Hashim Amla was fasting during the triple century against England: FALSE

Reference: Cricinfo commentary during this game says the following: (see 76th over)

Firdose Moonda, our South Africa correspondent at The Oval, confirms that Amla (and Imran Tahir) are only fasting on non-match days.

Until there is evidence to the contrary, I consider CSA and Cricinfo's word to be reliable enough.
