RAJKOT: a frustrated Sheldon jackson has asked the national selectors for transparency after it was ignored by India A and the Duleep squads despite the consistent performances on the national circuit last season.
Despite scoring a staggering 854 runs in the last Ranji season, Jackson could not make it to the India A squad. The senior Saurashtra batsman was also ignored for the Duleep Trophy this year.

Jackson, who has played 66 first-class games, said that as a player he deserves to know where he is missing.
They tell me not to ask, but I firmly believe that we represent this beautiful organization and association and that we, as players, surely deserve to know why and where we are missing, or else our careers will end up wondering why. Selectors must be transparent, wrote Jackson, who scored two hundred and seven fifty years in Ranji's last season.
