During a discussion about the wicketkeeper’s batsman, Saurashtra player Sheldon Jackson was referred to as a foreign cricketer. Jackson is a member of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) squad for the 2022 season Indian Premier League (IPL) and was bought for INR 60 lakhs at the 2022 IPL Mega Auction last month.
However, one panelist, Rahul Rawat, posted a clarification tweet stating that Jackson was never referred to as a foreign cricketer. The panelist also encouraged all fans to watch the entire video and stated that he was aware of Sheldon’s achievements in the sport of cricket.
“I never mentioned Sheldon Jackson as a foreign player in that clip or the entire show.” It’s my fault for not noticing when he was referred to as an “overseas entrant.” “Please watch the entire show as I know Sheldon’s achievements for Indian cricket very well,” senior journalist Rahul Rawat tweeted.

Despite this, Sheldon Jackson retweeted a photo of the state of Saurashtra. The tweet lists the Saurashtra-born batsmen with the most Ranji Trophy centuries, with Jackson taking second place behind the Indian cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara. While Pujara has 21 Ranji Trophy centuries for Saurashtra, Sheldon Jackson has 17 three-digit scores.
“The Saurashtra-born player with the most Ranji Trophy centuries.” (Birthplace of Ranjitsinhji) 21: Cheteshwar Pujara Sheldon Jackson is number seventeen. Only Pujara has more hundreds than Sheldon,” read the tweet, which Jackson retweeted. The tweet is shown below.
Jackson has amassed impressive stats in top-flight cricket. The right-hander has played 79 top-flight matches and scored nearly 6,000 runs. Jackson’s runs were made at a rate in excess of 50 per game. In his top-flight career, the Saurashtra batsman has also hit 19 hundreds and 31 fifties. Whether he gets a fair chance at the IPL 2022 remains to be seen.
