    Still remember the days when I used to yell Mohammad Kaif after taking a nice catch.

    Good player on his day. I hope people remember how much he contributed to India with the bat.

    A decent middle order accumulator back in the day when hard hitting wasnt the thing. He bailed India out in some tense chases and big matches with the bat amd remains India's greatest ever fieldee. He was world class among the best in the circle.

    That outfield catch he took in the legendary Karachi ODI was a freakish effort. Unreal steel nerves and superhuman dive in a pressure cooker situation. Thats the most ridiculous piece of fielding i have ever witnessed given the context and the hype.

    A great servant for indian cricket.
    Though he wasn't a very good batsman,but he was a terrific fielder.Inclusion of him and yuvi in indian team was the first step towards making india a balanced team having experience as well as young blood.
    If he wasn't there we would'nt have won natwest series which marked the advent of the new strong indian team.
    All indians remember him as the best fielder ever from india.

    Even though he was limited as a batsman, he was mentally quite tough. He saved India in many matches with his gritty batting which is more than most players can claim.

    Arguably India's greatest fielder ever given that Indian fielding standards werent that high at that time and he was way ahead of his time in this aspect.

    This guy was one of the best fielders I have ever seen. He was so quick across the ground and also took some brilliant catches.

    The fact that most Indians have huge respect for him and almost everyone knows his name, inspite of the fact that he didn't play much international cricket is a testament to his character and conduct.

    It's sad that he is getting so much hate on social media for appreciating Pakistani players and performances. It shows just what a low mentality some folk have out there.

    His innings in the final changed Indian cricket. They went from terrible chasers to probably the best around, and he was part of that change with sensible batting even though he wasn't a big hitter.

    Don't think it's any different on the other side. Recently shoiab akhtar got quite an earful for praising Rohit Sharma and not Fakhar Zaman. Unfortunately, on social media mostly the negative ones comment, sane ones just end up liking or retweeting.

    Very beautiful retirement note he has penned. He has talked about moments and esp the NatWest final, most of us remember him not just for natwest final but also the superb catch he took of shoaib malik in the first odi on Pakistan tour, when Pakistan needed 9 runs of 8 balls with 4 wkts in hand. That catch turned the match on it's head.

    Don't know how many wickets have fallen because of him and Yuvi fielding in that off side corridor. He would have probably made great captain, I heard, but couldn't due to lack of batting ability.

    Those are mostly idiotic 'Bhakts' who didnt even left Sushma Swaraj, one of their own.Level-headed Indians have no problem with Kaif praising Pakistan.Afterall, its just a game, not war.

    As a kid I used to attempt some iconic catches taken by Kaif and Yuvi in my backyard. Always loved his fielding. Happy retirement Kaif.

    Was one of my favortie cricketers but he'd also feel hemassively under achieved in his career. Was captain of the India u-15 and u-19 teams that won the youth WCs. Had every support from the system but just could not step up to the next level.

    I wonder why he is not the fielding coach of the team though. Was the fittest cricketer to have played for India till Kohli's transformation. Also gave hopes to millions in smaller towns through his amazing rise through the ranks.

    Hopefully BCCI can use him effectively as a tout / administrator though looks like with his fluent Hindi, he's a media career ahead of him.

    Thanks for the memories Kaifu. Best wishes for the life ahead.
