He currently captains Jammu & Kashmir’s Para cricket team, and has been playing cricket professionally since 2013 after a teacher discovered his cricketing talent and introduced him to Para cricket.

Amir 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.
