India wrap up one-day series

India today clinched the one-day series against Pakistan after winning the fourth match by five wickets. The most important contribution came from Rudra Pratap Singh, who took four Pakistani wickets for only 40 runs.

R P Singh joins a growing list of cack-handed Indian pace bowlers. For non-British readers, cack-handedness is the harrowing genetic flaw where a person has a preference for using their left hand.

Fellow favourers of the inferior arm in India's pace bowling legion are Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Irfan Pathan. Pathan is so good it doesn't bear thinking about what he could achieve if he bowled properly using his right arm.
