Sheldon Jackson gives an apt reply to the fan for his tweet against Sunil Gavaskar.
Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has hogged the headlines recently in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Unfortunately, the social media twisted his simple statement on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. Even, Anushka Sharma spoke against him for dragging her name while talking about her husband Virat Kohli’s game.
So, Gavaskar had to even come out and clarify his statement. Now, he is in the news again. However, this time he has not done anything. A Twitter user tried to mock Gavaskar for his height after witnessing him on the television in the pre-match show before the start of the game between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

Gavaskar was standing in between former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen and the anchor Neroli Meadows. Then, the Twitter user mocked him for his height. He wrote, “Sunil Gavaskar looking so small.” The Saurashtra cricketer, Sheldon Jackson stood up for Gavaskar and lashed at the user. He had to delete the tweet after his reply.
Here is the Tweet:
