Person’s private life

Parnell stated unequivocally that his fellow cricket players Hashim Amla and Imran Tahir, as well as the team manager Mohammad Moosajee, did not have any role in his decision to become a Muslim. He gave some thought to changing his name to Waleed, which means “Newborn Son,” but ultimately decided to stick with Wayne.
Parnell has been featured in advertisements as a show of support for PETA. In May 2016, he tied the knot with the South African fashion blogger Aisha Baker.
