In that match, England posted a huge total of 325/5, with Marcus Trescothick and then captain Nasser Hussain slamming a century each.

But, the Lord’s final is best remembered for Kaif’s match-winning 121-run partnership with Yuvraj Singh that helped India pull off a record 326-run chase after being reduced to 146 for 5 at one stage.

Kaif played superb knock to remain unbeaten at 87 runs of 75 ball and walked away with the Man-of-the-Match award.
