In an Australian cricket team full of stars, Usman Khawaja stands out. He’s a fine batsman and an agile fielder, but there’s something else. He’s a Muslim. In fact, Usman is the first Muslim to ever wear the baggy green cap. He says it hasn’t always been easy being different to his teammates, and in the past he has hated the attention placed on his faith. But now he is proud to celebrate it. And as Allison Langdon discovered, “Ussie” also has something else to celebrate. It’s something even better than scoring a century: his upcoming wedding to Rachel, who, for her future husband, has happily gone from being a good Catholic to a good Muslim.
