Keaton Jennings has had a forgetful series against India as he averaged just 18. England coach Trevor Bayliss is, however, still hopeful that Jennings will be selected for the SL tour which is England's next assignment.
Jennings averaged just over 18 in their recent 4-1 series victory over India and has not scored a Test century since his debut knock in Mumbai in 2016.
“I’m sure he will be a bit nervous about which way it will go. He scored runs in India on spinning wickets and I’m sure that will be in his favour,” Bayliss told the British media.
“But he is a big boy, he knows runs on the board count as well. All of those points will have to be discussed and I can’t say at this stage or another whether he will go or not.”
England will play five one-dayers and a Twenty20 International in Sri Lanka before the three-Test series gets underway on Nov. 6 at Galle.
