England's Keaton Jennings celebrates after reaching his century on the first day of the fourth Test against India in Mumbai on December 8, 2016South African-born batsman Keaton Jennings scored a century on his debut as England made a strong start Thursday to their must-win fourth Test against India, reaching 196-2 at tea. The left-hander, who switched allegiance to England to further his international career, was batting on 103 when the break was called in Mumbai, sharing the crease with Moeen Ali on 25.
