'My name is Mohammad Kaif and I am not a sharpshooter'

Cricketer Mohammad Kaif is facing an identity crisis. Tweeple think he is a wanted criminal

A hilarious case of mistaken identities has come to fore. A Twitter user tagged India cricketer Mohammad Kaif and tweeted that he didn’t expect him to be a sharpshooter.

The confusion arose when his namesake, who is a wanted criminal in Bihar, recently in an interview with DNA said that he has been falsely accused of killing journalist Rajdev Ranjan. Moreover, he explained that he is a former cricketer. This statement from Kaif was enough for Twitteratis to connect cricketer Mohammad Kaif with the entire episode.

After repeated calls and tweets, Kaif eventually wrote a letter stating the least one can do is verify the content. The 35-year-old cricketer clarified that he likes shooting, but only when it is shooting the stumps with a ball. Kaif will be leading the Chattisgarh team, who are competing for the first time in Ranji Trophy.

We feel the pain that you must be going through. May the force be with you.
