Asymmetrical Arms – Lack of equivalent and equality between the two arms, which are supposed to be of similar length.

The name β€˜Leonard Hutton’ is taken with all-time greats like Sir Donald Bradman and WG Grace. His record in Test cricket is unparalleled to none. In his fourth Test, he scored a 364-run innings which was the highest individual score for quite some time before Sir Gary Sobers bettered it with a score of 365 against Pakistan at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

During commando training in a gym, he unfortunately, met with an accident and his arm was broken. The surgery was not fruitful and his left arm ended up being by one-and-a-half inches than the right arm. It is hard to imagine someone playing cricket with asymmetrical arms.

The Brit played 79 Tests and scored 19 centuries at an unbelievable average of 56.67! He passed away in 1990 at the age of 74.
