Kaif said that if the catch would have been taken back then, it would have been a tight position for the Indian team to chase the massive target of 274. Unlike the current T20 formats, in those days the target as such was a good run chase score and if a team was able to achieve such target, then it was seen as most suitable for the run rates. Eventually, with the help of Sachin, Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh the match was won by 28 balls to spare and by six wickets. Kaif said,
“Sachin was batting very well. My role was to support him and stay with him. I was told to build a partnership with Sachin and, if he is attacking, just stay there. I fulfilled that role,”
Mohammed kaif being part of the Saurav Ganguly led team was able to make some 35 runs of 60 balls and was sent back to the pavilion by Shahid Afridi at the 22nd over.

However, it was very painful loss after getting that far, but it a match that gave goosebumps to every Indian who witnessed that match.
