Amir is an expert at the unusual technique of holding the bat between the neck and shoulder while batting and bowling with his leg. He told,

“My game has received praise from everyone, and I believe that God is the reason for my success because, although bowling with the legs is a challenging sport, I have mastered all the necessary skills and methods. I accomplish every task on my own, and I am not dependent on anyone except God.”

Since 2013, Amir has participated in para cricket and is the captain of the Jammu and Kashmir para team. He added,

“I participated in an international match against Bangladesh in 2018 and played for my country in Delhi in 2013.” I went on to play cricket in Nepal, Dubai, and Sharjah after that.
