& # 39; I was just not interested & # 39; Shane Warne & # 39; s son Jackson struggled with the pressure to follow in the footsteps of famous dad because he admits that he never & # 39; so good & # 39; was in cricket
Shane Warne's cricket success has earned him an Australian sports legend.
But the 20-year-old son of the star, Jackson, admits that he & # 39; just not interested & # 39; was when it came to following his famous father's footsteps and pursuing his own cricket career.
In an interview with news.com.au on Saturday, Jackson admitted that he was struggling with the pressure to imitate Shane & # 39; s success, acknowledging that he never & # 39; so good & # 39; was in sports.
Not like father, like son? Jackson Warne, 20, admits that he & # 39; just not interested & # 39; was when it came down to follow in the footsteps of his famous father Shane and confessed that he never & # 39; so good & # 39; was in cricket
Shane has played cricket professionally and internationally over the course of his career, which covers almost two decades and now comments on the sport.
While Jackson emphasized that he was extremely proud of what his father had achieved, he admitted that he did not have the same desire to donate his cricket whites.
He remembered school for a while when he played cricket and it made the press, Jackson said the & # 39; pressure factor & # 39; and people's expectations of him became too much.

& # 39; I could never be so good, I could never try to be so good … I just wasn't really interested, & # 39; he said.
Fortunately for him, he says that dad Shane didn't force him to follow in the same direction.
& # 39; It didn't matter what we wanted to do, Dad just wanted us to be happy, & # 39; he said.
Not for him: while Jackson emphasized that he was extremely proud of what his father had achieved, he admitted that he did not have the same desire to donate his cricket whites, and admits: & # 39; I could never be so good & # 39;
Shane is the father of son Jackson, along with daughters Brooke, 21, and summer, 17, whom he shares with his ex-wife Simone Callahan.
He and Simone split in 2005, but their relationship stayed on and off – until they split forever after photos of Shane kissing ex Elizabeth Hurley appeared.
Simone has reviewed the pictures from eight years ago in an interview with The sun in 2018 and claimed that the former cricket player & # 39; selfish & # 39; acted by entering into an affair with Hurley.

Shane and Elizabeth later went out with their relationship and yoga instructor Simone said she was shocked and ashamed of her three children.
& # 39; I assume they just got caught up in themselves and had the pleasure of having them, without thinking about anyone else. They were selfish, & Simone said on the paper.
Shane and Elizabeth announced their engagement in 2011 but split in 2013.

Shane has since said that despite his shortcomings as a husband, he has always been a good father while addressing his relationship with his children in an interview on The Today Show.
& # 39; I am proud of my children. I love being a father, & he said.
& # 39; I may not have always been the best man, but I have always been a great father. I enjoy it. I am so proud of my children and they are proud of me. & # 39;
