For the unversed, Sheldon Jackson shares a close bond with the former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir. In fact, it was Gautam Gambhir, who saw potential in him and gave him a chance.

Earlier, in an interview, Jackson had revealed how Gambhir helped him in getting picked on the KKR side. Jackson had revealed that it was after a Ranji Trophy match, that he had approached Gambhir and asked him how he can improve on his game. Responding to this, Gambhir had said that he was playing well, and will be picked by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) franchise in the IPL auction. He had said:

“We were playing a Ranji Trophy match against Delhi. I scored a 50 against a very good bowling attack. After that, I went up Gautam bhai, I have always idolized him, so I said: ‘Bhaiya, what do you feel about my game? How can I improve?’ He said: ‘You are batting well, just be ready. This year, I’ll pick you in KKR’. I just thanked him and went away, thinking he said that just to keep my heart,”

He added: “The auctions came and I went unsold in the first round. But someone from the KKR management called me saying, ‘Don’t worry Gautam bhai called us just now and we’ll go for you’. And I got picked for KKR. I always looked up to Gautam bhai, and I still do,”
