Former India cricketer Mohammed Kaif shared a throwback picture featuring Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan in a swimming pool. All the cricketers are looking young. The four cricketers played a huge role in Indian cricketing folklore. Kaif was the star for India in the Natwest series finals in 2002, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag do not need introductions and Zaheer Khan is arguably the best left-arm fast bowler to have represented India.
Kaif is currently seen doing commentary at times apart from his role as a mentor for young cricketers. He also joined Indian National Congress and contested 2014 Loksabha election from Phulpur in Uttar Pradesh, and lost to Keshav Prasad Maurya of the BJP.
Kaif was also part of the World Cup squad in 2003 which emerged second best in the tournament in South Africa. Kaif is highly regarded as one of the best fielder produced by India.
Kaif made his Test debut in 2000 against South Africa in Bangalore soon after, and was selected in the first intake of the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
Kaif earned himself a Test cap against South Africa when he was at a very young 20 years age. Although dropped after some ordinary performances, he made a good comeback to the Test side against Australia late in 2004 scoring two half-centuries. He is a very fast runner between the wickets and an excellent cover fielder; most notably his agility and throwing accuracy.
