South African cricketer Bjorn Fortuin has embraced Islam.

The 26 years old cricketer made his international debut for the South Africa cricket team in September 2019.

As being reported he has accepted Islam along with his wife in the holy month of Ramadan last night.

His new Muslim name is Emad now!

The news was broken via an Instagram story that was also shared by the cricketer’s wife later on.

Fortuin also shared the same story on his official Instagram handle.

 

He is the second Proteas player to embrace Islam recently. Earlier was Wayne Parnell, the left-arm-medium-fast bowler who converted to Islam back in 2011.
