His excellent catches were a part of the match between India Legends and Sri Lanka legends during the Road Safety World Series. The India Legends batsman’s exceptional fielding skills are clearly visible via the two catches he conducts on-field.

The two dismissals by Mohammad Kaif that took the audience to cloud 9 are those of Tillakaratne Dilshan and Chamara Kapugedera.

Munaf Patel throws a delivery to Dilshan who tries to hit the boundary. However, due to mid-timing it, Kaif seizes the opportunity from the boundary and runs towards the ball, taking a dive at the perfect time. This beautiful dive ensured the dismissal of Tillakaratne Dilshan. On the other hand, it was Zaheer Khan’s delivery that ends Chamara’s reign on-field. Chamara hit the 3rd delivery of the 18th over which was ultimately caught by Mohammad Kaif. Kaif runs to the right from his mid deep-wicket station and performs the second catch.

However, it isn’t only Kaif’s bowling that is praise-worthy, but also is his batting. His tremendously skilful batting led him to secure a score of 46 runs. These runs include 4 fours and a six. His scores contributed heavily to the overall win by the India Legends.

Additionally, Irfan Pathan and Manpreet Gony put up a good partnership. Coming in at number 6, Irfan Pathan secures a half century like wildfire and puts India on the winning track. His performance was wildly similar to that he put up with his older brother Yusuf Pathan during 2009 at Colombo against Sri Lanka. Irfan Pathan’s score for this match bypasses the scores of Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, ans Virendra Sehwag. Their scores are 0, 1, and 3 respectively.
