Mohammad Kaif & World Cup
Mohammad Kaif (born December 1, 1980) is an Indian cricketer. He is a thinly built cricketer who made it to the national team on the strength of his performances at the Under-19 level, where he captained the Indian team to victory in the Under-19 World Cup in 2000. He can be both defensive and aggressive, as variable strike rates in Test and ODI cricket suggest.

Middle-order batsman Mohammad Kaif today said the ICC Under-19 World Cup, which started yesterday in the UAE, is a good platform for the budding cricketers. "We also came through Under-19. We won the World Cup in Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli was captain of Under-19 team that won the World Cup (later). Unmukt Chand too. It is a good platform for youngsters to show their talent. Then they get the opportunity in Ranji to show their talent," said Kaif, who is here to play for Air India in the BCCI Corporate Trophy tournament that starts on Sunday.

Captained by Mohammad Kaif, openers Ravneet Singh and Manish Sharma impressed with three century partnerships but it was the powerful and wristy left-hander Yuvraj Singh who really stole the headlines. Yuvraj thrashed 203 runs in the tournament from just 196 balls faced including 58 from only 25 balls against Australia in the semi-final. It was the prelude to a stunning introduction to the senior India team later in the year when he hammered 84 from 80 balls against Australia in the ICC Knock-out in Kenya. As if his form with the bat was not enough, he also bowled some handy left-arm spin in Sri Lanka taking 4-36 against New Zealand and 4-15 against Nepal.
Profile India witnessed the birth of golden boy Yuvraj Singh when, as a teenage sensation fresh off an Under-19 World Cup triumph, he scored a match-winning 84 on international debut to topple Australia in the ICC Knockout Trophy in 2000. Laying in limbo between 'raw talent' and 'finished article', the youngster successfully walked the tightrope and delivered when given his chance. The southpaw's ability to stand and dictate proceedings was reminiscent of South African ace Lance Klusener. The combination of grit and flair stood out even in a team that oozed with batting finesse. His fielding proficiency, particularly while deployed at point and his ability to roll his arm over effectively made his value shoot up exponentially. His winning mentality became contagious very quickly. An early example of this was showcased when India were down 146-5 while chasing a mammoth 325 in the 2002 NatWest final.
