Ben Cutting Facts

  1. Ben had made his first-class cricket debut, for Queensland, in the opening match of the 2007-08 season of the Sheffield Shield. His start was not highly auspicious as his very first delivery had gone for 5 wides. However, he had recovered well enough to pick 3 wickets.
  2. In both the 2009-10 and the 2010-11 seasons of the Sheffield Shield, he was the leading wicket-taker for Queensland. In the first of those seasons, he was also the leading wicket-taker in the entire competition with 46 dismissals.
  3. In August 2017, he had been selected in a ‘World XI’ squad to play a series of T20I matches against Pakistan, as part of an effort to bring international cricket back to Pakistan which had been stalled after the dastardly 2009 terrorist attacks against the Sri Lankan national team in Lahore.
  4. A valuable all-rounder who can attack with the bat in the lower middle order, he has featured for several franchises around the world in the shortest format of the sport including the Brisbane Heat (2012-13–2019-20) and the Sydney Thunder (2020-21) in the BBL (Big Bash League); Rajasthan Royals (2014), Sunrisers Hyderabad (2016-2017), Mumbai Indians (2018-2019), and Kolkata Knight Riders (2021-Present) in the IPL (Indian Premier League); St Kitts and Nevis Patriots (2018) in the CPL (Caribbean Premier League); Nangarhar Leopards (2018-19) in the APL (Afghanistan Premier League); and Quetta Gladiators (2020) in the PSL (Pakistan Super League).
  5. He was named the ‘Player of the Match’ in the final of the 2016 edition of the IPL for his game-defining performances with both bat and ball – 39 not out off just 15 balls in the first innings of the match to set up a daunting total of 208 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad which was followed by a critical spell of 2/35 that included the big wickets of Chris Gayle and K L Rahul that helped his team limit Royal Challengers Bangalore, their opponents, to 200 runs in a high-scoring match – that had resulted in a win by a slender margin of 8 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad, giving the franchise their first IPL title.
