England go down swinging, Keaton Jennings has surely run out of time and Hardik Pandya is a true Test all-rounder

1) Keaton Jennings, surely, is done It might seem harsh to pick on one of only three England batsmen to reach 20. But even a modest Jennings knock is often fraught with danger and ridden luck.
