Sheldon Jackson has scored a ton of runs in List-A cricket but has failed to get his national call-up. The 36-year-old batter recently got another setback when his name was not included in the West Zone’s Duleep Trophy squad.
In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Jackson emphasised Karthik’s commitment to the contest by stating, “I get inspired when I see Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni. I have witnessed all of Karthik’s transformation. At this point of my career, he is my greatest inspiration and motivator.”
When asked about his exclusion from the West Zone’s Duleep Trophy squad, Jackson declined to respond, claiming that the selectors alone were responsible for their choice. “I am not going to comment on anyone’s selection. I can only talk about myself. I’ll never call a selector and inquire as to why I wasn’t chosen,” he continued.
“If I wasn’t good enough, I wouldn’t have played 90+ games with an average close to 50,” Jackson responded.
