Cape Town - Batsman Keaton Jennings says he "absolutely loved" his time playing Test cricket for England despite being dropped for the upcoming series against the West Indies.

The left-handed Jennings was latest opener to be axed from the England side after only scoring 127 runs in eight innings in the recent four-match series against South Africa at a paltry average of just more than 15.

However, the 25-year-old has described playing the longest format of the game as a privilege and will work hard on his technical flaws to get back in the England side.

The Chroniclelive website quoted Jennings as saying: "I haven't not enjoyed the last three or four weeks.

"It's been incredibly hard but I've absolutely loved it. I've had experiences that you can't have anywhere else, pressure that you can't have anywhere else.

"To be in and around that environment has been a privilege, I've absolutely loved it. It's been tough but I've learned loads.

"Hopefully in the next couple of games I can make an impact with the bat but if I can't it won't be through a lack of effort.

"I'll go away and work on my game, spending hours and hours hitting balls to get myself back up to the point where I really want to be, scoring runs."
