Buttler Fingers has already missed too many straight forward chances in this series. Some of them have been very costly - eg Masood scoring more than a hundred more after being dropped in the first test.
Missed chances can be very expensive in test cricket - not just the batter you drop but the effect on momentum in the game and the extra runs at the other end in a partnership that should have already been broken.
Looking at your keeper options, I’ve seen nothing that persuades me that Buttler Fingers will score sufficiently more runs than Foakes in test cricket to compensate for those he will cost you behind the stumps. ODIs a different matter.
