A 34-year differently-abled man from Indian-Occupied Kashmir’s Waghama village serves as the captain of Jammu & Kashmir's Para cricket team.

Aamir Hussain Lone from Anantnag district of Indian-Occupied Kashmir is one of the cricket fanatics who has been practicing cricket close to home for many years.

His cricket journey began in 2013 when a teacher discovered his talent and introduced him to Para Cricket. 

Despite having lost his hands in an accident at the age of 8 in his father's mill, Amir has emerged as an inspirational figure in the world of cricket. 

Currently, he is the captain of the para cricket team of Jammu & Kashmir's Para cricket team.

Recently, former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar respected Aamir's wish and took to X to encourage him, in which he wrote "One day I will meet Aamir and on that day I will give my shirt to Aamir." 

Furthermore, former Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra also invited Aamir to watch the T20 semi-final in Mumbai in 2016.

According to media reports, Amir Hussain Lone lost his hands in an accident at the age of 8 in 1997, but despite this accident, he did not give up and started playing cricket with his legs.
