Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders are currently facing off against each other in the first match of IPL 2022. KKR won the toss and opted to bowl first in the match being played at the Wankhede stadium. It turned out to be the best decision as they dominated CSK from the very beginning and restricted them to a very low total.
Although many KKR players players brilliantly today, the performance of Sheldon Jackson who has replaced Dinesh Karthik as their new Wicket-keeper has been particularly praised very much. He was absolutely awesome behind the stumps and performed as if he has been playing in top level cricket throughout his life.
Sheldon Jackson has been around in the Indian Cricket scenario for quite some time now but has never been able to leave a mark. This is finally his time to shine as it seems like he will remain the permanent Wicket-keeper of KKR for the rest of the season.
Jackson’s lightning fast stumping which gave KKR the important wicket of Robin Uthappa is being talked about a lot as Sheldon Jackson’s stumping in that dismissal was top notch and it shows exactly how good a Wicket-keeper he is.
A lot of former Indian players even praised Sheldon Jackson for his performance. However the foremost of them was Sachin Tendulkar who absolutely was in awe of Jackson’s stumping of Robin Uthappa. He tweeted: “That was an outstanding stumping. @ShelJackson27’s speed reminded me of @msdhoni. Lightning fast!! ⚡️”
