Mumbai: Saurashtra batsman Sheldon Jackson questioned the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for allegedly not including any Saurashtra and ‘small state’ players in India A despite playing the Ranji trophy final.
The 32-year-old also shared a picture on Twitter showing the statistics of leading run-scorers and wicket-takers in Ranji including Saurashtra players. However, Jackson got irked by a distasteful tweet by a troll.
The troll targetted India's Test opener KL Rahul who has been struggling to amass runs lately and highlighted his friendship with skipper Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma.
Jackson gave a befitting reply to the troll saying that he should learn some manners and keep families away from cricketing matters.
Surya, please learn some manners and think before you tweet. This is so disrespectful towards KL and Anushka who have nothing to do with it. Keep families away from cricketing matters! https://t.co/uJ4gWlwynk— Sheldon Jackson (@ShelJackson27) September 10, 2019
Jackson, who has played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL amassed 854 runs in the previous Ranji season....
