Keaton Jennings says he has ignored criticism of his selection for the tour of Sri Lanka after scoring an unbeaten 146 in the first Test.

The century was the opener's second in Tests, coming 23 months after his first, on debut in India, and helped England reach 322-6 before declaring to set the hosts a world-record 462 to win in Galle.
