Former Saurashtra batsman Sheldon Jackson was involved in a bitter exchange of tweet with one of his followers following his tweet on former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar.

Sheldon Jackson was all praise for the batting legend for his commentary. He took to Twitter to praise Gavaskar while he was on-air during the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday. Sunil Gavaskar had recently landed in hot water for allegedly making an unsavoury comments against Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.

He was slammed by the fans as well as Anushka as the latter asked him to explain his words. Later, Gavaskar had to clarify his comments as he stated that his words were twisted and taken out of the context. Sheldon Jackson, nonetheless, praised Gavaskar for his commentary on Wednesday, writing:

“sunil gavaskar sir’s commentary is just Gold , so much to learn”

This is when one of his followers decided to post an unsavoury comment, telling the former Kolkata Knight Riders batsman he needed Gavaskar’s blessing to be part of Team India.

“Need his blessings if you want to be part of Team India,” wrote the follower.

Sheldon Jackson noticed the tweet and he straightaway shut down the follower with a fitting reply, writing:

“apparently, i need my mothers blessings and i have that since the day i was born, if that dsnt work nothing else will.”

As far as Sheldon Jackson’s career is concerned, the wicketkeeper-batsman helped Saurashtra win the Ranji Trophy earlier this year before deciding to part ways with the team. He will now ply his trade for Puducherry in domestic cricket.
