“34-year-old differently-abled cricketer from Waghama village of Bijbehara. Amir Hussain Lone currently captains Jammu & Kashmir's Para cricket team. Amir has been playing cricket professionally since 2013 after a teacher discovered his cricketing talent and introduced him to Para cricket. He bowls using his feet and bats by holding the bat between his shoulder and neck. Amir lost both his arms in an accident at his father's mill when he was eight years old,” ANI wrote in a tweet on January 12.

Hope I get to meet him one day and get a jersey with his name. Well done for inspiring millions who are passionate about playing the sport”.
