Kaif met Dhoni for the very first team in a Duleep Trophy game between Central Zone and East Zone where Dhoni was playing as a wicket-keeper for team East Zone. 

Kaif’s Lucknow friend made him aware of Dhoni’s astonishing unstoppable sixes. He said his six-hitting prowess was worth watching and you must put a glance on it!
