Keaton Jennings made only four on his return to action for Durham Jets in the T20 Blast on Friday

England opener Keaton Jennings believes he is a “better player” following a disappointing series against South Africa which cost him his Test place.

He made only 127 runs in eight innings, at an average of 15.87 and with a best score of 48, as England won 3-1.

His poor form led to the selectors calling up Mark Stoneman to replace him for the first Test against West Indies.

“It was a really good learning experience for me,” 25-year-old Jennings told BBC Newcastle.
