Alongside being the head trainer at the Pilot Project, Abdul Jabbar Khan is passionate about cricket. He’s played and promoted cricket for the Blind most of his adult life and funnily, a cricket ball injury is also why he is now permanently blind. He is now 46 years old and has lived most of his life in Karachi.

He learnt cane-knitting at the Pakistan Association of the Blind in 1990 and joined the Pilot Project at its inception in February 2014.
