Watch: Mohammad Kaif shows off his spinning skills, asks skipper Sourav Ganguly to see the drift, flight


India Maharajas defeated World Giants extensively on Friday night at the legendary Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata in a special match ahead of the second season of Legends League Cricket.

Pankaj Singh’s five-wicket haul and Yusuf Pathan’s blazing strikes propelled the Indian Maharajas to a six-wicket triumph. As the Indian Maharajas batted brilliantly, middle-class batter Mohammad Kaif struck up a funny Twitter conversation with prolific all-rounder Irfan Pathan.

Notably, both cricketers put in remarkable performances in the match, with Kaif taking an important wicket in the first innings and Irfan Pathan hitting great with his older brother Yusuf Pathan in the chase. A day after the Indian Maharajas won a thrilling match, Kaif uploaded a short video of him taking a wicket in the lonely over and pitching as a substitute.
