Saurashtra wicket-keeper batsman Sheldon Jackson has appealed for transparency in the selection process in a series of tweets to selectors for not picking players from smaller states. He alleged that “small state sides” are discriminated.

“Saurashtra has played the Ranji trophy finals this year, and surprisingly still no player even after performing at all platforms, don’t get picked for the A-series. so is the importance of playing the Ranji trophy finals zero,” Jackson tweeted.

He also said, “Or is that small state sides aren’t taken seriously coz in the last 5 years Saurashtra has played 3 finals… I am told not to question, but I strongly believe … where we lack. Selectors should be transparent.”

Jackson, who has played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, current first-class batting average being almost 50. Jackson has been a consistent performer n the domestic front and is among the many Indian players who are staking a claim for a place in the national side. 

The 32-year-old finished the 2018-19 Ranji Trophy as Saurashtra’s top run-scorer having scored 854 runs in 11 games at an average of over 47 which included two centuries and seven fifties.
