The 10th edition of Indian Premier League will feature some of the most talented players from all around the world. The focus however will be on the uncapped Indian players who have been picked up by various franchisees, as this will be their chance to shine and make a claim for Indian team selection. We take a look at 5 uncapped players who will prove their worth to their teams if they are given opportunities to play the whole season.
Saurashtra player Sheldon Jackson was retained by the Kolkata Knight Riders before the IPL 2017 auction and this showed that the franchise had immense faith in this talented wicketkeeper batsman. Jackson who is in the squad as a backup for Robin Uthappa who keeps wickets regularly for the team, is now the prime candidate to be given a long run in the team at the top. He can easily replace Uthappa with both bat and gloves, if needed, since Uthappa has seen a drastic drop of form in his batting which saw his Ranji Team Karnataka drop him from the squad before the Ranji quarter-finals. Jackson has a first-class average of 84.57 and a T20 strike rate of 104, which he can easily work hard on, given that he plays majority of matches for KKR this upcoming season.
