Amir attributed his success as a Para-cricketer to his grandmother who played an important role in his rise as a Para-cricketer. Amir commented, “Since my accident, my grandmother urged me not to lose hope. One day, I asked my grandmother to roll a ball toward me since then wherever she dropped the ball, I moved to hit it. With time, I learned and perfected the techniques of cricket.”
