Rob Smyth has handed me a couple of interesting stats:
72 Keaton Jennings’ average in three Tests in Asia. In his other 10 matches, all played in England, he averages 18.
12 Sixes hit by England in the match. Only twice – Edgbaston 2005 and Cape Town 2016 – has an England team hit as many in a Test.

Keaton Jennings has a chat with Sky. He talks extremely quickly.
It’s been a very special day for myself personally, and it’s very special to be in such a good position in this Test match. Hopefully we can go on and win it. It felt like there was a ball out there that could get you out so I suppose it was a cat and mouse game, trying to get off strike, trying to keep pressure on the bowler in order to get that bad ball to get off strike.
How hard, he’s asked, is it to play in that way?
It’s tough. When you bat with a guy like Stokesy because of his aura, the way he hits the ball and the way he goes about playing, it is made easier. Jos walks in and hits it all over the place as well. Just a really good performance from a team perspective.
How did this century feel, given the summer he’s had?
I suppose all you can do is try to score runs when you get that opportunity. At the end of the day the summer was tough, and my performances weren’t up to scratch. I’m happy to admit that. Hopefully I can keep putting in match-winning performances.
Does he keep track of what people are saying about him online and in the press?
I did a year ago, and I think I got myself into quite a state, reading that and waking up in the middle of the night stressing about it. But not any more. I try to isolate myself and listen to a core group of people who have stuck with me for the last 25, 26 years.
And did he expect the declaration to come as soon as Ben Foakes got out?
We were told two overs and then there was one ball left. I felt that we were just going to go at that point, but no, one more ball and get the reverse sweep out again.
