Veteran Saurashtra batter Sheldon Jackson is miffed with the selectors for ignoring him again. He was not considered for the India A squad, which will take on New Zealand A.
Despite being a regular performer in domestic cricket, the right-hander has failed to represent the national team.
In an interview with Sportstar, he launched a strongly worded attack on the selection committee.
“Many times, I have heard that he is a frustrated cricketer. I am a fun-loving player who has a family to go back to. If I am asking a question, there has to be someone who can get back to me. Sadly, there is no one,” he said.
Jackson, who averages more than 50 in first-class cricket and plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, lambasted the selectors for not putting his name in the West Zone squad for Duleep Trophy.
“I am not even picked for the Duleep Trophy because someone feels I am too old. I was hoping to play for India A. And you don’t pick me for Duleep Trophy, which is unexpectable,” he said.
The 35-year-old said that players in their thirties are not looked at because of their age.
