The 2002 NatWest Trophy final hero, Mohammad Kaif was asked about having a relationship with the Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif. The former cricketer was asked on Twitter during a session named #AskKaif where a twitter account ‘The-Lying-Lama’ asked, “Sir are you related to Katrina Kaif? If not, then do you think there’s a chance in the future? ;)”. In reply Kaif said, “Not related yet Baaki already happily married. But heard an interesting story of how Katrina got her surname Kaif, according to that story it has a connection with my name.”
It was a #AskKaif session which was organised by the cricketer himself. He invited the questions from Twitter users and interacted with them. He welcomed the questions from all around the world. The session continued for an hour or so and ended up as an interesting one.
One Twitter user asked him about MS Dhoni, “According to you, which is the best no. for Dhoni to bat 4/5/6/7?”. In reply, he said, “4 or 5 depending on the situation”
Another account asked, “Your most memorable moment as a player of Indian Cricket Team? #AskKaif. Kaif replied, “As a player, I have been defined by that NatWest finals, but the ODI partnership against Pak with Rahul Bhai, the 2003 Centurion partnership with Sachin Paaji and 91 against Eng in Nagpur that helped us save the game remain special to me.
Another Twitter user asked about his favourite Pak Batsman nowadays, and he said, “Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam have got great talent and potential.”
Someone asked about Rahane’s importance in the Test squad, “Rahane doesn’t have two counter-attacking innings in his career, and he is a top line batsman. Why isn’t anyone calling that out? #AskKaif”. In reply, Mohammad Kaif said, “Wrong notion that being counter attacking is necessary. He can counter-attack but I see application and patience as a much more needed quality in Test Cricket still.”
