July 2012, London: A True Role Model for Muslims: Hashim Amla, South African cricketer might be fasting (in Ramadhan) whilst playing against England in a Test Match. Hashim Amla is currently 47 not out at close of play on Day 2 of the Test Match between England and South Africa being played at The Oval in London. Test cricket is usually played from 10am till 6pm or slightly later. The fasting hours (daylight) in UK are 18 hours so it would be amazing if he is fasting whilst playing. Many players in the past have missed fasts whilst playing cricket. However, he is away from South Africa so he is also travelling and that could potentially excuse him from fasting (depending on circumstances relating to duration of stay). Hashim Amla is a star batsman, averaging 47 in Test cricket and 56 in ODI cricket. Hashim went on to score 311*.
