Cricket: Jenner picked for England Test

Jonty Jenner will provide cover for England's fielders on the opening two days of the first Test at Lord's

JONTY JENNER could make an appearance for England at Lord's tomorrow after being picked as 12th man for their first Test against South Africa.

The teenager, who hit 68 runs on his first appearance for Sussex's first XI last month, will provide field cover at the home of cricket as Joe Root begins his England captaincy with a four-Test series.

Jenner is believed to have been selected for at least the opening two days of play, before a potential return to action with Sussex 2nds on Saturday.
