See this boy from Kashmir excel at cricket, without arms

He bowls using his feet and bats by putting it between his chin and neck.

Amir Hussain Lone, a 26-year-old boy from Kashmir, lost both his arms during an accident in 1997 but didn’t lose his spirit to face life as it comes. Today, the captain of Jammu and Kashmir’s state-para team, he plays the sport like any other cricketer, perhaps better.

He bowls using his feet and bats by putting it between his chin and neck. He is a living example of the very popular saying ‘nothing is impossible’.

At the age of eight, Amir lost his arms at his father’s sawmill which, in fact, made cricket bats. His father sold his property and spent all his money for Amir’s treatment despite being advised otherwise by people and Amir cannot be more thankful.

“I’ve never lost hope. I’ve never accepted defeat. I’ve always said that I’ll keep going. That’s my desire,” he says.
