Mohammad Kaif is a refined batsman from Uttar Pradesh. He first came into limelight with his performances for India's Under-19s: he captained the side, which also included Yuvraj Singh, Ajay Ratra and Reetinder Sodhi, that won the Youth World Cup of 2000. This earned him a Test Captaincy against South Africa when he was only 20. He made a powerful impact with some steady and purposeful batting. It was during the 2002 NatWest series in England that he truly hit the target, closing to a magnificent unbeaten 87 as India successfully chased 326 for victory in the final. A fantastic century followed - against Zimbabwe in the ICC Champions Trophy. He is an exceptional cover fielder with the ability to bowl offspin, he could be a fixture in the one-day squad for years to come.
