In the cruellest of ironies, Hussian's father made cricket bats in his sawmill for a living. The family was forced to sell their entire property to pay for Hussain's treatment and rehabilitation.



After being hospitalised for three long years, Hussain fought his way back to the sport and became the skipper of Kashmir's para cricket team.


"After I lost my arms, I was subjected to bad behaviour from many people and just then I decided to do something special in my life," Hussain who idolises Sachin Tendulkar said earlier in an interview.
