Watch: Kaif amazes spectators with uncustomary pickup
Amidst all the big names participating in the ongoing Road Safety World Series, former India batsman Mohammad Kaif continues to catch everyone’s attention with his superb display on the field.
That he was one of the best fielders of his time is known to all. But in the third match of the ongoing tournament between India Legends and Sri Lanka Legends in Mumbai which the hosts won by five wickets, he surprised the fans with an uncustomary pickup as well.
The incident happened during the 6th over of Sri Lanka Legends innings, when Kaif showed his brilliant athleticism and incredible footwork to pick up a ball with his feet, running towards the square leg region from boundary.
And immediately after sending back the ball to the India wicket-keeper Sameer Dighe, Kaif burst into a sweet smile while the spectators from the gallery started chanting his name to appreciate what they had just witnessed.
But this was not all the 39-year-old had to offer in the match. He went on to take two stunning catches to amaze the fans even more.
His brilliant fielding helped his side dismiss Sri Lanka captain Tillakaratne Dilshan (23) and batsman Chamara Kapugedara (23).
And then, coming in to bat at No. 3 in the first over itself while chasing a 139-run target, Kaif scored a very important 46 off 45 balls with the help of four fours and a six.
Thanks to Kaif’s all-round effort, the Sachin Tendulkar-led side eventually cruised the victory with 10 balls and five wickets to spare.
Here is the uncustomary pickup from Kaif that amazed all the fans:
