I reckon a well disguised top-spinner would be more useful. The problem with a wrong'un delivered by a chinamen to a right-hander, is that unless the ball is really full (or the pitch offering very little life), most of the time batsmen will miss it by a mile (same reason why right arm inswing bowlers rarely bother trying to develop an outswinger). I suppose if it was only a gentle doosra that didn't turn too much, it could be valuable to have. Would also be an effective delivery to left-handers and delivered over the wicket though.
