In the third match of the 2020 Road Safety World Series, India Legends star Mohammad Kaif turned back the clock with his exceptional fielding efforts.

Kaif, who was once a gun fielder of Team India, reminded the fans as to why his fielding is so highly rated. The 39-year-old grabbed two stunning catch to dismiss Sri Lanka Legends captain Tillakaratne Dilshan (23) and middle-order batsman Chamara Kapugedera (23).

In the eighth over of the first innings, Munaf Patel delivered a shortish ball around off to Dilshan as the batter miscued his pull shot. The ball came off the top edge of the bat, and Kaif took a splendid running catch at deep mid-wicket to complete the dismissal.

Kaif registered a similar effort in the 18th over when Kapugedera flicked a delivery off Tendulkar’s go-to-man Zaheer Khan. Fielding at deep mid-wicket, Kaif ran to his right to complete his second praiseworthy catch of the match.

Later, coming in to bat at No. 3 in the first over itself while chasing a 139-run target, Kaif scored a well-calculated 46 (45) with the help of four fours and a six.

All-rounder Irfan Pathan, meanwhile, sealed victory for India in the penultimate over after scoring 57 not off 31 balls.
