Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane by Rahul
For real fans of the Big Bash League, Ben Cutting is a real cult hero. The lanky all-rounder hailing from Brisbane was discovered as a great talent only due to his performances in this tournament for the Brisbane Heat and now is one of the players who has also become in demand for international tournaments like the IPL.
Cutting generally comes in the batting order between 6-8 depending on the team need and situation and is an explosive batsman who likes the big hits. His strike rate in T20 cricket is 156 and he is scoring at an average of 23 runs per game.Last season he was the 4th highest scorer for the team with 133 runs in 8 innings. He smashed 12 boundaries and 5 sixes in those knocks. In 46 innings played, he has hit 48 sixes and 38 boundaries; you know your probably getting 2 boundaries of him almost every game.
Ben Cutting had an average showing on the bowling front with just 4 wickets in 8 matches, and this year he will look to be a more prominent role as their first change bowler. Cutting has improved his bowling in the longer form of the game where its harder to take wickets. He also bowled well in the Matadors' BBQ ODI Cup, which is the domestic cup in Australia taking 10 wickets in at an average of 28. Cutting will look to his change up deliveries that he bowls especially the good slower ball bouncer that he owns, that is difficult for many teams to face.
The Brisbane Heat batting lineup is comprised of many big hitting batsman, so there is a good chance that Cutting will get plenty of opportunities to bat. There is also no James Hopes this season which will give Cutting as the obvious spot as the allrounder in the side. All we need in this game is for Cutting to take 1 wicket; because the 13 runs with the bat is quite possible considering the long hits he provides.
