Sheldon Jackson who played for Saurashtra in their first Ranji Trophy this year, will now start playing for Puducherry later this year. He said that the decision on shifting was not easy. Jackson has stated these words in a release issued by Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA).
The right-hand batsman scored 809 runs in 10 matches (18 innings) at an average of 50.56, in the 2019-20 season. Besides, Pankaj Singh who’s known to be the former Test bowler has also returned to Puducherry after missing the last season due to injury. V Chandran, Cricket Association of Pondicherry Secretary told that Paras Dogra who scored well in domestic cricket, has been retained into the team.
Talking about Jackson, he made his debut for Saurashtra in 2011. He scored 5634 runs in first-class cricket at an average of 49.42. He was successful in backing 19 hundreds and 27 half-centuries. Jackson has recently got a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from SCA to play domestic cricket from other associations.
