Jennings vows no complacency

Keaton Jennings says that there is no danger of complacency setting in as he bids to cement a regular place in the England Test side.

An excellent county season for Durham was rewarded by a Test place during the tour of India. A space at the top of the order was created by an injury to Haseeb Hameed and Jennings took advantage, scoring a century in his debut Test in Mumbai.

I'll try to put the performances on the board that will get you recognised.

Though England struggled on the tour, losing heavily and resulting in Alastair Cook deciding to quit as captain, Jennings did well, hitting a 50 in Chennai and he stands a good chance of keeping his place when England, under the new captaincy of Joe Root, take the field against South Africa in July.

He told PA Sport: "At the end of the day that's three or four months away, there's a lot of cricket to be played before that point and a lot can happen in the season and in those months.

"I'll try to put the performances on the board that will get you recognised. Hopefully I can just get through my routine and really enjoy my cricket like I did last year."

The delay to the Test summer is due to the ICC Champions Trophy taking place on English soil throughout June.

England are 1212/1 to win the trophy with India 4/9 and Australia 1212/1.

That delay means that Jennings has the chance to further stake his claim for a Test place by continuing his good form for Durham for whom he scored 1,548 runs last season at an average of 64.5.

Durham are 1212/1 to win Division Two of the County Championship with Kent at 66/1.
