One of the cricket crazy county in the world is Pakistan. The drought that they had to endure without any international cricket over a period of almost 10 years is immense. The cricket crazy nation is slowly regaining all their lost joy in the last year or so after the top level cricket has slowly started to take place in their backyard.
For the first time, the gala league in Pakistan super league is happening on the shores of Pakistan and all the leading T20 batters around the world are playing in the league without any security concerns.
The Queensland born Ben Cutting who is a global Superstar even without playing much of top level cricket for Australia is making massive impact for his team Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan super league.
The all-rounder who is known for his ferocious hitting of the cricket ball made an impactful knock of 42 from just 17 deliveries that included as many as 4 maximums.
During his knock, he was caught by the bowling of Ruman Raees when Quetta needed 16 runs from 2 overs but the ball was called as a no-ball by the umpire as the bowler over-stepped which proved to be the decisive factor in the match.
It was expected that Ben Cutting would attract some of the franchisee during the IPL auction but to everybody’s surprise, Ben Cutting didn’t get even one bid as he went unsold. He is one of the best utility player going around in the T20 format and can be a captain's delight if handled properly.
The big guy has been hovering around the Australian circuit for quite long but still couldn’t able to break into the playing XI in the shortest format of the game.
Ben Cutting was the man of the match in the 2016 IPL finals for his all-round performance where SRH lifted the trophy under David Warner by beating RCB. He picked up 2 important wickets of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul and scored a cracker jack knock of 39 runs from 15 deliveries that included as many as 4 maximums in it.
