On 3 March 2017, during the 2016–17 Vijay Hazare Trophy match against Chhattisgarh, Jackson became only the second Indian batsman to be given out in a List A match by obstructing the field.[5]

On 2 November 2018, in Saurashtra's match against Chhattisgarh in the 2018–19 Ranji Trophy, he scored his fifteenth century in first-class cricket.[6] He was the leading run-scorer for Saurashtra in the group-stage of the 2018–19 Ranji Trophy, with 613 runs in eight matches.[7]

He was highlighted once for his tweet against indian selectors for ignoring him and other Saurashtra players for India A selection. He tweeted that playing FC is then of no importance and also pointed the selectors biased because according to him they belong to 'small states'.
