BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew Norichika Aoki Youth jersey Keaton Jennings will be very disappointed, although it does open up a can of worms in that he had the hardest of the opponents in South Africa, who have a really decent pace attack. With Mark Stoneman coming in against West Indies, what will we learn? He might have easier opposition but quite awkward conditions to make his mark in the day-night Test. Jennings has got a really good character, the England hierarchy like him very much and he works very hard at his game - that's what he's got to do to come back a better player. I suspect Mason Crane won't play at Edgbaston - it's a match where England will get their seamers out as the pink ball could do all sorts of strange things - but we will see him later in the series. He's only played a couple of seasons of first-class cricket and that's an awful lot to ask making the step up to Test cricket. He's one for the future and one England like the look of, but they will have to tread warily. The 28-year-old has played 17 Tests, taking 48 wickets at an average of 29.33 and scoring two half-centuries. He will compete with Roland-Jones for the third seamer's spot, but may also provide England another all-round option, potentially replacing Malan, with Ben Stokes or Jonny Bairstow moving up the batting order. "He was impressive in his return game at Lord's this Authentic Stephen Vogt Youth jersey week and if selected in the final line-up, he will be relishing the prospect of playing on his home ground," said Whitaker. National selector James Whitaker said he hoped Jennings will return to his county and "recapture the form" which made him the leading run-scorer in the 2016 County Championship. "I am sure he will find his confidence and look to score runs in the remaining matches of this season," added Whitaker. Haseeb Hameed, 20, was left out of the South Africa series after struggling this season and again misses out, despite an unbeaten 77 for Lancashire this week - his first half-century in first-class cricket this year. South African Van Niekerk had been hunting the first 200m-400m double since Michael Johnson 22 years ago, while Makwala of Botswana had run a solo time trial to get this far after his initial controversial exclusion on medical grounds. But the 27-year-old Guliyev, who switched allegiance from his native Azerbaijan in 2011, held off Van Niekerk (20.11 seconds) and Trinidad and Tobago's Jereem Richards (20.11) to win Turkey's first gold medal at a World Championships in 20.09 and pull off another upset at an unpredictable London 2017. "This is not a shock," said the champion. "But it does not feel real. "I have shown my best throughout this competition. I delivered my best race at the right time. I'm so happy to be world champion. This is the best moment of my career." Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake was 0.13 seconds off bronze in fourth, another Authentic Steven Souza Womens jersey close miss for Britain to go with the fourth places for Laura Muir in the 1500m, Kyle Langford in the 800m and Callum Hawkins in the marathon. Mitchell-Blake told BBC Sport: "I am glad to come through healthy. I feel like I have let the nation down today. I know I had the calibre to get a medal. I wanted to win. That's all I thought about when I go out there." Olympic 400m hurdles champion Dalilah Muhammad had earlier been dethroned by her USA team-mate Kori Carter, as Britain's team captain Eilidh Doyle came home eighth. It has been a week where many of the big names have struggled, but one of the sport's great champions, double Olympic and world triple jump gold medallist Christian Taylor, once again excelled on the biggest stage as he held off fellow American Will Claye in a thrilling, seesaw final. Makwala had become the folk hero of London 2017 having been excluded from both the 400m and 200m heats when the IAAF medical commission placed him in 48-hour quarantine after deciding he showed symptoms of norovirus. He then got through a time trial in sodden conditions on Wednesday evening to make the semi-finals, getting through those despite having only two hours recovery. But those efforts may have taken their toll in the least preferred of his two events, and he tired down the home straight to finish sixth in 20.44, his slowest time all week. He told BBC Sport: "The 400m was the one I put all my money on; the 200m I do sometimes for speed only. It's not like the 400m. I never use blocks, but I am happy I was in the final. "I thought I could get a medal, but I ran yesterday two difficult races and it wasn't easy. "I will leave the championships with my heart broken."
