NB as Lord Protector I must impress upon you the importance of not trashing this thread with dickswinging references to spinners who were not left arm wrist spinners
What a great nickname he has! That's much more imaginative than most modern nicknames.

Not answering, but topical nevertheless.
Lol do you live in the Middle Ages(potentially more if it wasn't discouraged, much like how we now see higher rates of people identifying with the lgbtqi+ community now that it's more accepted, not because there's suddenly more, but because it's more accepted)
My dad was born left handed and the nuns at his school forced him to write right handed because the devil was in the left hand or somethingLol do you live in the Middle Ages
I'm sure this isn't trueI'll also add that a lot of the SLA bowlers we see are actually ambidextrous players
Leach and Maharaj seem to be right hand batters and throwers, for example. But I dunno if they are ambidextrous or they just bat with the top hand being the stronger hand or something. Lara was a right hander who batted left handed and Sachin seems to be a left hander (he writes left handed) who just played cricket right handed.I'm sure this isn't true
Yeah that's not what ambidextrous means. A lot of cricketers bat "left-handed" but are right-handed, and vice versa, it's not rare at all. A lot of coaches will tell you the naming should actually be the other way around and you're better off having your dominant hand as your top-hand. From the Aus team I followed as a kid a lot of the batting line-up was like this. Hayden, Langer, Hussey, Gilchrist are all right-handers that bat "left-handed". Michael Clarke the opposite. I think if you go through all the great left-hand batsmen of the last few decades nearly half, maybe more, will actually be right-handed.Leach and Maharaj seem to be right hand batters and throwers, for example. But I dunno if they are ambidextrous or they just bat with the top hand being the stronger hand or something. Lara was a right hander who batted left handed
It comes naturally to some people, the first time I picked up a bat I held it left handed but I do most things including bowling and throwing right . So does every cricketer in my family apart from my aforementioned uncle who is fully left handed.If you have a kid learning to play cricket, I would encourage having them learn to bat this way. Dominant hand on top.
