Yuvraj and Kaif then appealed to the people to unite to fight the corono virus epidemic. Let us tell you that the partnership that PM Modi talked about in his tweet was from NatWest Final (2002) where India was given a target of 326 runs to win the match. India were struggling at 146/5 at a time when both Yuvraj and Kaif were at the crease together.
The pair gave India a silver lining in the match by sharing 121 runs. Yuvraj was dismissed for 69, but Kaif performed well, defeating the batsmen by two wickets to give India a two-wicket victory in the last over.
