Someone has well-said that "the world is a small place." And we often meet our "lookalikes" As the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is underway, fans couldn't help and relate Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR), Sheldon Jackson, to Sushant Singh Rajput thanks to cricketer's looks. Fans took to Twitter and tweeted about the uncanny resemblance between Sheldon Jackson and the late Bollywood actor. The comparison started during the KKR's match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Cricket Experts Refer to KKR's Sheldon Jackson As 'Foreign Player' Ahead Of IPL 2022 on a TV Show.
Sheldon Jackson was picked up by Knight Riders at the IPL 2022 mega auction for a base price of INR 20 lakhs. He was previously associated with the same franchise as well—the wicketkeeper-batsman has featured in just five matches for KKR this season. The KKR wicketkeeper affected a stumping of Robin Uthappa and was praised for his glove-work.
