Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting is famous for his batting and bowling and on the basis of this, he makes a splash in the Big Bash League (BBL). Currently, he is playing with Sydney Thunder in BBL. Sydney Thunder had a match with Sydney Sixers on Sunday and Cutting did wonders with his fielding. He took such a catch that everyone’s eyes were left open.
Brendan Doggett sent out an average delivery wide of the off stump which James Vince tried to slice for a six. But Cutting precisely leaped up and managed to complete an incredible catch just inside the ropes. The catch was extremely important as the Thunder were defending a low total of 133 runs.

Brilliant comeback by Sydney Sixers
Talking about the match, Sixers opted to bowl first after winning the toss. But they started badly as they lost their 3 wickets after scoring only 12 runs. However, Sam Whiteman and Alex Ross controlled the innings and stitched a 64-run stand for the fourth wicket. Coming in at no.7, Cutting played a finishing knock of 26 runs off just 15 deliveries.
Ben Dwarshuis and Sean Abbott displayed a brilliant bowling performance as Dwarshuis picked up 2 wickets while Abbott dismissed 3 batters and conceded only 9 runs in his 4-over quota. He restricted the Thunders to the score of just 133 runs in 20 overs.
134 was never going to be a challenging target but at 16/3, the Thunder were buzzing around with confidence. Another wicket right there and anything could have happened. However, Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk had other ideas.
They kept their calm, just ensuring that the dot balls never piled up and that was all that the situation demanded. Chris Green and Brendan Doggett were the only two bowlers who were able to take wickets while the rest of the remaining bowlers went wicketless.
