The 35-year-old Sheldon Jackson, who was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction for INR 60 lakh, got the opportunity in the playing XI in the first match itself and he was handed over the gloves in the presence of England’s wicketkeeper-batsman Sam Billings.

Jackson looked brilliant behind the stumps and he pulled off a lightning-quick stumping to dismiss Robin Uthappa in the 8th over of the match, which was bowled by Varun Chakravarthy. Legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar was highly impressed with Jackson’s keeping and he took to Twitter to shower praise on the wicket-keeper.
