The White Ball series between India and Sri Lanka will be played during the month of July. BCCI has announced the Indian team to play 3 ODIs and 3 T20 series. Many young cricketers hoped that in the absence of senior players, they would get a chance to show their performance. While for some that hope has come true, for some the hopes have been dashed. One such is Bhavnagar’s six-wicket haul, Sheldon Jackson. He has shown frustration by posting a broken heart on social media.
Some cricketers were waiting for a tour of Sri Lanka after the IPL was postponed. Because the team including the senior players of the Indian team has reached the tour of England. Where he spends about three and a half months. Sri Lanka, meanwhile, will play two limited-overs series and send another team. So some players were hoping to get a chance subject to the situation.
Jackson is disappointed not to be included in the Sri Lanka Tour squad. He posted a broken heart on social media for not being selected in the team. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation. Her grief was met with disappointment even among the fans. Fans also came out in support of him. Although he later shared a video of the practice and captioned it, “The sun will rise again, I will try again.”

More than 100 sixes
