    Would Murali have taken more wickets had he been a left armer?

    I was thinking about this today, and I wondered how many wickets Murali would have taken, had he been a slow left armer?

    The much more important question is wether his wrist is helicopter like on his left arm as well?

    lol yeah exactly.
    More appropriate question would've been would Murali have taken more or less wickets if had no defect in his bowling arm.

    Neither. I don't think it affects his wicket taking ability. Its the wrist, not the arm. Except when he bowls the doosra, as I do have doubts about that delivery (when anyone bowls it).

    Its a bit of an odd question, I voted less because 1,000 international wickets its pretty hard to beat in any case

    I say less because had he been left handed....he mit've been able to write faster and therefore probably would've finished his 12th grade math and/or science exam faster and in time....and this mite've resulted in him being a big engineer or scientist or doctor or something along those lines.
