    Yousuf Youhana is now Mohammad Yousuf

    Yousuf Youhana, who was the only Christian in the Pakistan team, has converted to Islam. There is now speculation that the he has done so in a bid to take a shot at the captaincy as traditionally, Pakistan’s cricket captains have been Muslims. Though he wanted to convert a few years back itself, he couldn't due to pressure from wife and family. The decision has apparently not gone down too well with his parents.

    Hey, where did you get his new name from? That link does not seem to point to an article in Statesman, and the stories I read on this did not mention this name!

    Cricinfo doesn't yet have any player by this new name, but I guess thats understandable :-)

    Thanks Worma. The Statesman link apparently went on leave (AWOL!). Edited to reflect other sources.
