CAPE TOWN – South African cricketer Bjorn Fortuin, along with his wife Mieshka Aysen, embraced Islam.
The 26-year-old, who made his debut for the Proteas in 2019, has changed his name to Emad. Fortuin has embraced Islam, the world's second-largest religion, along with his wife in the most sacred month of Ramadan.
The news was first posted on Instagram that was also shared by the cricketer’s wife afterward. Fortuin himself also shared the same story on his official handle.
