Kaif worked as an assistant coach for the Delhi Capitals in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. Along with Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly in the coaching staff, Kaif helped DC to finish third in the points table.
During the IPL 2019, Kaif had suggested a new rule should be brought in so that teams do not misuse the provision to replace fielders. He had also pointed out the instances when the current rule was missed, Kaif said it is unfair that teams can replace poor fielders with good fielders even when no injury has been sustained.
Speaking on behalf of the Delhi team management, the cricketer said this is an issue that will be raised with the match officials. He explained, “Good fielders are staying while poor fielders are going out. In the Delhi Capitals-Kolkata Knight Riders game, Piyush Chawla went out after bowling his four overs and Rinku Singh came in.”
