18 years ago, the former England skipper Nasser Hussain had uttered some really cheap word for a very young player from Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh. Nasser Hussain had said:
“I think he must drive the bus; he drives Tendulkar around.”
And these words were uttered to none other than the Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif, who is regarded as one of the finest cricketers to have ever played the game for India. Kaif, who took retirement from cricket in the year 2018, heard the cheap sly but remained calm and helped team India to a very famous and historic 2-wicket victory.
It was the day when that young lad had shown maturity than Nasser Hussain. He had also pointed 3 fingers towards the press box, and signalled that he was good as England’s number 3 in the 50-over format.
Now 18 years after that incident, Mohammad Kaif has replied to Nasser Hussain’s sledge on a public platform. Replying to a tweet by Sky Sports Cricket, Mohammad Kaif wrote that it is because of the same match that the ‘bus driver’ now drives a convertible. He wrote:
“.@nassercricket, thanks to that innings the bus driver drives a convertible now 🙂 @skycricket”
