Perhaps, you do not know what you have done. (giving him a signed bat) You may perhaps like it."

Amir captains Jammu and Kashmir's para state cricket team and is regarded as one of the best para cricketers in India. Amir Lone's video of him bowling with his leg and batting while holding a bat between his neck and shoulder surfaced on social media, attracting praise from Sachin who had shared his desire to meet him one day. 

"Amir has made the impossible possible," Sachin wrote in his X post in January 2024. "I am so touched watching this! Shows how much love and dedication he has for the game.  Hope I get to meet him one day and get a jersey with his name. Well done for inspiring millions who are passionate about playing the sport."
