• England opener hits unbeaten 34 against South Africa
• ‘That might be what he needs to kickstart a good trot’
Keaton Jennings has endured a rough start to his first home summer in Test cricket but has not once allowed his head to drop, with his England team-mate Jimmy Anderson tipping the opener’s battling performance on a rain-affected third day to kick-start a return to form.
A century on debut in Mumbai in December augured well for the left-hander’s international career but this season has been a chastening one. A duck on day one meant Jennings went into the second innings with one foray into double figures in five innings but he will resume on Sunday unbeaten on 34 as England look to increase their lead.
