He became a regular feature in the national team in the early 2000s.

Additionally, he was an exceptional fielder who plucked balls out of nowhere and made the art of catching look easy on the eye. Now, Mohammad Kaif has had his say on the accusations made by Yuvraj Singh's father Yograj Singh on MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
