Mohammad Kaif(born 1 December 1980) is an Indian cricketer, more specifically a middle-order batsman. He is a doughty cricketer who made it to the national team on the strength of his performances at the Under-19 level. He can be both defensive and aggressive, as variable strike rates in Test and ODI cricket suggest. In full flight, he can be great to watch, as like Mohammad Azharuddin, he can find the gaps on the on-side.
His international career has been patchy, with the occasional outstanding performance backed up by ordinary batting. His most famous feat was helping India chase down 326 with a marvellous 87* during the 2002 NatWest Series Final. He made a good comeback to the test side against Australia late in 2004. His cover fielding is exceptional. Kaif earned himself a Test cap against South Africa when he was 20. He is an energetic and excellent cover fielder.
