Sydney Thunder 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.
In the last outing, Cutting took 2 wickets and scored 6 runs. While he didn't put on an impressive showing with the bat, his role at that time when he came to bat was to take singles and give the strike to Ross as he was facing both Jordan and Richardson who were good death ball bowlers. In tomorrow's game, the ground is smaller and that will give Cutting a chance to free his arms and smack that ball long. Also the batting of the Sydney Thunder team has been pretty average so far, and that will give him chances to take wickets. All we need in this game is for Cutting to take 1 wicket and 1 catch; or we rely him to take a wicket and score 10 runs with the bat, which shouldn't be too hard to ask for.
