Paul Palmer is an accomplished left-hand batsman playing for the star-studded Jamaican side in the Caribbean.

He’s been on the domestic circuit since 2013/14, but over the past few years, he’s started to produce the form that saw him nudge West Indies Under-19 selection.

Palmer skippered Jamaica Under-19s for two seasons (2009-10) – guiding his side to the title in his first year, in a side that featured Windies internationals John Campbell, and Jermaine Blackwood.

He went on to skipper the Jamaica XI against the touring New Zealander’s (2014), hitting 52 with an attack featuring Boult, Southee, and Wagner. A few years later, he was again at the help, this time against the England Lions (2018).

Palmer, though, initially broke into professional cricket during the 2013/14 season for the Combined Campuses and Colleges, before earning Jamaican selection in 2015/16.

After a lean run in first-class cricket, hitting 98 runs at 16.33 in his 3 matches, he produced an excellent 2017/18 season, striking 483 runs at 30.18 to include his maiden century (136).

Palmer backed up with another 387 runs the following season, before a barnstorming summer in 2019/20, where he finished as Jamaica’s 4th leading run-scorer (behind internationals Nkruma Bonner, Campbell, and Blackwood), and 12th overall in the WICB Regional 4-Day Tournament hitting 2 centuries amongst 432 runs at 43.20.

Given his success, Palmer’s name has been bandied around for national selection and he’s hoping for another strong domestic season in 2021/22 to further his claims.

Thereafter, the punishing left-hander is looking to embark on his maiden UK league stint in 2022. Having never played in the UK previously, he is eager to impress on the field and add value to whatever club he joins in a coaching capacity off it. A highly recommended option for any club side in 2022.
