New Delhi : Reminiscing about his brief but happening international career, recently-retired batsman Mohammad Kaif, who was part of a decorated India side that included legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid, said he is satisfied with the way he played the game.
Kaif, who last donned the India jersey in 2006 against South Africa, has played 13 Tests and 125 One-Day Internationals (ODI) but despite some great performances, including his match-winning knock of 87 at Lord’s during the Natwest Trophy final in 2002, kaif admitted that many youngsters like him were lost among the greats in the team. “I am happy the way I played my game. I contributed and created some moments for Indian fans — both overseas as well in India,” Kaif said.
“I was playing under some of the best players and they all became the legends… when you have so much of competition in the team then it’s also difficult for the selectors to make room for younger players like me,” kaif added.
