With his recent form has Bramble jump over Hamilton as the next keeper challenging Dowrich for his position?

Hamilton didn't even deserve to be picked based on atrocious keeping on the recent sub-continent tour and indifferent batting last year - when was the last time he made a lil 50?

Yeah... after the Lions I was pretty keen for him to get a chance but in the year since then he has not produced much and that keeping that he did in the sub-continent was just piss poor.

That is a low level job....a ONE time cappo...for a match which may not even be a first class match

Bramble is WI B team cappo...remember..captain of the Cricket West Indies invitational team in the inaugural participation at the Global T20 Canada League from June 28 to July 15, 2018.

Bramble delivered two big tons this season already

May not be Hamilton's fault because he has been on tours....but he has done nothing in regional cricket recently to deserve a spot in the senior team

hence this Cappoship, throwing him a lifeline.

The question is has Hamilton done anything to sustain consideration for selection?

Is not a case of merit

More one of “well if Hamilton could get a West Indies call up, why not Branble?”

Ah mean, he score 2 big hundreds this season.

Doh study his 27.6 FC batting average from 48 FC matches. He score 2 centuries this season!!!!! cool
