Parnell bowls perfect length by embracing Islam

Wayne Parnell, the South African Left-Arm Pacer and a specialist of Yorkers, has delivered his life-time best delivery by converting to Islam. 

Parnell confirmed in a statement that he converted to Islamic faith in January this year and is considering to change his name to Waleed.

Proteas team manager Muhammed Moosajee, said Parnell's Muslim teammates Hashim Amla and Imran Tahir had not influenced his decision to convert from Christianity. 

Moreover, the South African national team players have been very impressed by the discipline and strict adherence that Hashim Amla showed to his religion, by refusing to participate in celebrations with them that involved liquor, staying steadfast in his daily prayers even while on tour, and refusing to wear the kit sponsored by South African beer brand Castle Lager.
