Md. Kaif, born on 1 December 1980, Allahabad , may not be the most attractive of stroke players that the Indian team possesses. But he adds up enormous value to the side with his quicksilver fielding coupled with cool-headed batting in the lower middle order. He came into reckoning when he captained the Indian team to an Under19 World Cup title in Sri Lanka. No guesses required, because we are talking about none other than the energetic Md.Kaif. Kaif is one of the few players from Uttar Pradesh who could have made it to this highest level though there are a few names such as Suresh Raina, Praveen Gupta, R.P.Singh who have donned the Indian colours at the Under19 level.

Md.Kaif was thought of as a future Indian captain and has been under the National Cricket Academy drills for sometime. He was thrown into the nuances of Test Cricket at an early age of 20 when he had to face the Protean attack at Bangalore. Md.Kaifs innings was more of occupying the crease rather than scoring runs and was soon shown the exit  door from Test Cricket.

Kaif made his Test debut in 2000 against South Africa in Bangalore soon after, and was selected in the first intake of the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. His early international career was patchy, with the occasional outstanding performance backed up by ordinary batting. His most famous feat was helping India chase down 326 with a marvellous 87* (off 75 balls) in the 2002 NatWest Series Final. The effort earned him his first Man of the Match award. In the series against Bangladesh in late 2004, he was named Man of the Series for his consistency in all the three ODIs. Kaif earned himself a Test cap against South Africa when he was 20. Although dropped after some ordinary performances, he made a good comeback to the Test side against Australia late in 2004 scoring two gritty half-centuries. He is a very fast runner between the wickets and an excellent cover fielder; most notably his agility and throwing accuracy. He also has the world record of five catches in a World Cup match. Although he was mostly known for his fielding ability along with Yuvraj Singh, he has often shown signs of a great batsman.

According to the Times of India, as of July 2005, he was one of only five cricketers from Uttar Pradesh to have made it to the national side. As of 2009 though the Indian team is well represented by Uttar Pradesh with as many as three regulars, Suresh Raina, Praveen Kumar and Rudra Pratap Singh in the ODI team. He is the current captain of both Central Zone and Uttar Pradesh. He also captained the national ODI team in the 2005-06 Challenger Trophy in the absence of regular captain Rahul Dravid.

Md. Kaif is Sagittarius by his sign. His lucky numbers are 1,12, 13 and lucky colours are pink and blue. After slightly troublesome period, you shall get a big sigh of relief from the tension, obstacles and problems that were facing in your professional life previous year.

You might get opportunities of growth in your career in the beginning of the year itself. During this time you might get recognition and promotion in your job and in business also there is probability of getting gains. You shall assist your close relative for resolving his problem of education, unemployment or bad health
