    South African fast bowler Wayne Parnell in a statement on Thursday announced his conversion to Islam from Christianity, Times of India reported on Friday.

    He has also changed his named to Waleed after his conversion to Islam earlier in January this year.

    Parnell confirmed in the statement that he has been studying about Islam and will celebrate his 22nd birthday as a Muslim on Friday.

    Parnell said:


    “While I have not yet decided on an Islamic name I have considered the name Waleed which means Newborn Son, but for now my name remains Wayne Dillon Parnell. I will continue to respect the team’s endorsement of alcoholic beverages. I am playing cricket in Sussex and this is my immediate focus.”

    The South African cricket team manager, a Muslim by faith, Mohamed Moosajee said that Parnell’s Muslim teammates – Hashim Amla and Imran Tahir – did not influence his decision to convert from Christianity.

    Moosajee said:


    “Wayne already decided a few months ago to follow Islam. The decision to convert was his own decision, but I know nothing of the name change.”

    Parnell’s fellow players, reportedly said they believed that he is very serious about the conversion and had not ‘touched a drop of alcohol’ ever since he converted to Islam.

    He is the second Christian cricketer to have converted to Islam after Pakistan’s Yousuf Yohana (now Mohammad Yousuf) in 2006.:confused::confused::confused::confused:

    I don't think this "news" would have made "news" if he had converted to any other religion but Islam.

    Bitter yet true.

    I dont see anything wrong with his decision ? Its his personal life...he can do what he likes.

    And blackwater posting standard has gone down again....muslims aren't required to keep a beard unlike blackwaters religion....pot kettle black ? A little knowledge goes a long way.

    I think when he calls the press and announces his conversion then the press does cover it, when Julia Roberts announced that she was an Hindu the press covered that as well. If people convert and dont speak of it then it would be unusual for the press to make it a news but when people yell out their new faith then there no point in simply blaming the media for reporting stuff.

    This is not a topic to be debated coz it is his personal choice to which religion he should follow.....

    Thats because even converting to hinduism is looked down upon among conservative christians.

    Standard???. Calling pakistan a begger is banned in DFI ,posting Islam relating article is banned or are considered low standard. what we supposed to do become MESSIAH like u. is that sufficient to raise the standard???

    it was just a news I posted, its your dirty and rotten mind is low standard. Keeping name messiah does not make u one..

    You know very well what you are doing i.e claiming that all muslims have beards.

    ofcourse you can bash pakistan all you want...come to sb and we'll sing death to pakistan together but stop posting same thing in every thread.

    You dont know my religion very well. keeping beard is not compulsory in my religion too. A Sikh can be anybody who believes in holy book teachings. You have to keep 5K's if u baptized become khalsa

    you ignorant fool

    It is not about islam it is about generalizations be it for anything.

    why doesn't entire pak and bangladesh teams have beards ? and those that keep beards aren't radicalized but have merely become conservative and there's a difference between the two.
