Keaton Jennings revealed he postponed an accounting exam to join up with the England squad ahead of the second Test against Pakistan.

Jennings has been drafted in for the Headingley Test, which begins on Friday, but had to cancel a test of a different kind to be part of the side.

"I booked my train down to London to write a three-hour accounting paper today," Jennings told the ECB website.

"That's a couple of quid down the drain but that's life.

"I wouldn't change it for the world, potentially playing a Test match for England. Those memories and experiences that only a handful of people get to experience. 

"I'm in a really privileged position to experience that and the exam can be rewritten. If I fail it, so be it.

"It's been an interesting couple of days, couple of months, but I'm just really happy to be here."

Jennings has made six Test appearances for England since making his debut in December 2016, when he scored a century against India in Mumbai.
