South African cricketer Wayne Parnell, who faces drug charges over a late-night party last year following an Indian Premier League game, has reportedly surrendered to a Mumbai court.

Parnell, who is in India as part of the Pune Warriors squad for the ongoing 2013 IPL season, was later granted bail on a bond of 10,000 rupees ($175), the Press Trust of India news agency said.

The 23-year-old and his Pune teammate Rahul Sharma were among nearly 100 people detained for medical testing at an upmarket hotel in Mumbai last May which was raided by police who found drugs on the premises.

Parnell, who left India after the medical examination, has denied any wrongdoing.

The local Juhu police station officer in charge of the case was unavailable for comment.

Left-arm paceman Parnell has played three Tests, 27 one-dayers and 17 T20 games for South Africa.

He has yet to play in the IPL this year.
