Saurashtra batsman Sheldon Jackson has earlier questioned about the selection of players. The 32-year-old has played for India A and is eagerly waiting for joining the senior player. He raised his voice against the selection committee and demanded transparency. He is of the view that small state players are not considered for selection.
His fellow cricketers supported him through twitter. Recently, Jackson shared a post which showed the ranking of him and his fellow cricketer DA Jadeja. Through the post, he showed his discontent for not his selection in the team. A Twitter user commented on the post and said that he should increase the friendship with Anushka Sharma as KL Rahul is doing.
The troller targeted KL Rahul and indirectly pointed out that he is in the team because of his friendship with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who is the wife of Virat Kohli. The troller pointed Jackson to follow the same technique to get his place in the team.
Like k.L. Rahul… You try to develop friendship with anushka sharma…

Jackson slammed the troller and replied that he should learn manners and keep families away from this matter.
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
