The Kolkata Knight Riders' performance in IPL 2022 so far looks pretty good. Starting from the initial match until now, they have managed to record two wins from the three matches they played. The Indian Premier League this season has made spectators and cricket fans alike notice the abilities of the talented cricketers. One of them is Sheldon Jackson, the star of Kolkata Knight Riders.
The man whose full name is Sheldon Phillip Jackson has appeared in two matches in the IPL this season and has impressed many fans with his abilities. Not only getting praise from the fans, some former cricketers even praised Jackson's skills in wicketkeeping.
One of the compliments came from KKR head coach Brendon McCullum. By looking at Jackson's performance when securing the KKR team wickets, the man from New Zealand believes that Jackson has feelings like MS Dhoni when wicketkeeping.
“Sheldon continues to get better and better. He is 35, but you wouldn’t know. His growth in the last two years has been significant. He has a good ball-striking ability. And very few players hit the ball as far as he does, he is not too far, if not the same, behind Andre Russell when he is striking the ball. I am sure with more opportunities, we will see a performance from Sheldon,” McCullum told reporters.
McCullum added that Jackson had the hand speed while wicketkeeping. In addition, Jackson also understands bowling rounds and anticipates them well. “The wicketkeeping skills have been superb. He has got an MS Dhoni sort of a feel about keeping; really fast hands, and an understanding of spin. He knows what the bowlers are doing. He is desperate to do well,” he added.
