Lancashire batsman Keaton Jennings is in the England squad

Keaton Jennings has been called up to the England squad for the second Test against Pakistan.

The Lancashire batsman replaces Mark Stoneman in the 12-man squad for the game at Emerald Headingley, after finding form for his county in the early weeks of the season.

Jennings, who made his international debut in India in 2016, has hit two Championship centuries so far this year.

Mark Stoneman has struggled for form

Stoneman, meanwhile, has struggled both domestically and in the Test arena. He made just 13 runs in the first-Test defeat by Pakistan at Lord's.

The rest of the squad remains unchanged for the game, which England must win to secure a series draw.

National Selector Ed Smith said: “Keaton Jennings showed a strong temperament in scoring a hundred on his Test match debut against India in December 2016. Keaton has found good form in county cricket this season, including three centuries in his last seven innings (two in the First Division of the County Championship, one in the Royal London One-Day Cup).

"Mark Stoneman misses out at Emerald Headingley. Mark has experienced a disappointing start to the 2018 season and had a difficult Test match at Lord’s.”
