Former cricketers from India, England, Australia, New Zealand and several other countries are a part of the commentary and expert panel for the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). They enjoy their share of banters, pulling out old instances from their field time as opponents while expressing their views and delivering insights. All in all, it is a ball. Mohammed Kaif and Nasser Hussain who had quite a memory to share from the NatWest series in 2002 were working along as broadcasters recently.
Kaif posted the image with Nasser and in the caption very cheekily used a #tag ‘bus driver’. He wrote – “together again #busdriver #natwest #greatbrain. During the final of the Natwest series at the Lord’s Hussain had called Kaif who was batting exceptionally and leading the Indian charge a “bus driver”.
While he was playing the best knock of his career, the then England captain in an attempt to sledge the right-hander called him names. Revealing details of the same Kaif had said, “Yes, Nasser Hussain actually called me a bus driver 🙂 was good to take them for a ride!”
For the Indian fans who watched the game in the 2000s, it has to be the most memorable moment at least in white ball cricket. Batting first the hosts had posted a huge 325 runs and all the superstars of the Indian team were back in the hut before the chase could even get off. That was when Yuvraj Singh and Mohammed Kaif got together. They stitched together a partnership worth 121 runs and took the team home with 3 balls to spare but in style.
Sourav Ganguly who was the captain of the team famously took his T-shirt off while standing in the Lord’s gallery and waved it in celebration. Kaif had played an unbeaten knock of 87 runs as India chased down the total with just three balls to spare.
