A Kashmir boy lost both of his arms in a sawmill accident when he was eight years old, but that hasn’t stopped him from excelling at his favorite sport–and becoming captain of his cricket team.

Now age 26, Amir Hussain Lone has learned to do everything with his feet–from folding his laundry, to washing his face–even writing letters.

The young amputee fell in love with the sport after watching games on the neighbor’s television through the window.

“I ended up watching a whole innings from outside, spying through a crack in their window, and it was at that moment that my feelings for cricket crystallized and I pledged that I would play,” Amir told the BBC. “I struggled hard to develop my technique, whether it was bowling or holding the bat. Thanks be to God, I have done pretty well.”

Despite people’s prejudice against his disability, Amir has become an accomplished player.

“Nobody can predict what will happen tomorrow but my hope is that I will one day become an international player, and I’m working really hard to make that happen. God-willing one day I will take my place in the national para-cricket team.”
