Jennings ready to improve after South Africa struggles

12th August 2017, 12:49 by Gareth Freeman

Keaton Jennings says he will use his struggles in England's Test series win against South Africa as motivation to improve.

The opener has been replaced for the the first Test against West Indies after his poor performances in the series win over the Proteas.

Jennings, 25, managed a disappointing 127 runs in eight innings, with a best score of 48, against South Africa.

The left-hander now faces a difficult challenge to reclaim a Test place ahead of the winter tour of Australia, but he insists his failures against South Africa will make him a better player in the long run.

"It was a really good learning experience for me," he told the BBC.

"It was a tough series, you've got three of the top 12 or 13 bowlers in the world (bowling at you) on some pretty tough surfaces.

"I've moved away, I think, a more knowledgeable and better player and I'll definitely be in the nets grafting on my game to try to move myself forward."
