Howzat? Armless Cricketer Makes State Team

WTH? People never ceases to amaze. Take cricketer Amir Hussain Lone for example, who unfortunately lost both his arms at the age of eight in a tragic accident at his father’s sawmill. That obviously didn't stop him since he has defied the odds and has mastered the sport...

Ironically dad Bashir made cricket bats at the mill and had to sell the business to pay for his son’s treatment. But the injuries weren’t enough to stop Amir’s love of the game. Now aged 26 and captain of the Jammu and Kashmir state para-cricket team, Amir is able to bat, bowl and even catch out opponents using his feet. His unusual technique for batting involves holding the bat between his neck and shoulder. Amir, from Indian-administered Kashmir, bowls with his toes using a sweeping leg movement to launch the cricket ball.
