Gautam Adani Extends Support to Disabled Cricketer Aamir Hussain: Recognizing Courage and Determination

Gautam Adani, the chairman of Adani Group, has come forward to support 34-year-old disabled cricketer Amir Hussain. In a video, Gautam Adani mentioned that Amir’s emotional story is remarkable, applauding his courage, dedication to sports, and the never-give-up attitude in the face of adversities. Adani expressed admiration for Amir’s spirit and acknowledged the emotional journey he has undergone.

Gautam Adani assured that the Adani Foundation will get in touch with Amir shortly and make every possible effort to assist him. He commended Amir’s struggle, considering it an inspiration for everyone. Amir Hussain, hailing from Bijbehara in Jammu and Kashmir, is currently the captain of the Para cricket team.

Childhood Struck by a Painful Accident

When Hussain was 8 years old, an unfortunate accident caused both his hands to be amputated. His hands got caught in a machine while making a cricket bat with a bat-making machine. He spent nearly three years in the hospital after the incident. His father, Bashir Ahmad, who worked in a bat-making factory, sold everything to save his son’s life. Hussain is the second among five siblings.

Cricket Dreams Persist

Even after the childhood accident, Amir Hussain did not give up on his dream. Despite losing his hands, he found a unique way to hold a cricket bat. Hussain uses his wrists and neck to manage the bat and then takes shots by holding the ball between his toes. He developed a distinctive style, gripping the ball between his toes while using his thumb and neck to spin the ball.

Unyielding Determination in Adversity

Amir Hussain continued to practice relentlessly, and one day his dream became a reality. Witnessing his cricketing talent, he joined the Jammu and Kashmir Para cricket team in 2013. Overcoming various challenges, Hussain became the captain of the team. He captained the team to victory in the Inter State Para tournament in 2015 after being away from the sport for nearly a year due to personal reasons.

2013: The Breakthrough Year

Amir Hussain’s perseverance and talent were recognized when he joined the Jammu and Kashmir Para cricket team in 2013. In a short period, he rose to become the captain of the team. Despite facing adversity, Hussain took up the challenge, showcasing his cricketing skills and leadership on the field. In 2014, he was appointed the captain of the team once again. In 2015, after a period of absence, he returned to the sport and led the team to victory in the Inter State Para tournament, marking a significant achievement in his career.
