On Sunday, during the match between Sydney Thunders and Sydney Sixers, Ben Cutting took an amazing catch to dismiss James Vince in the 34th game of the Big Bash League 2022-23.
Thunders’ batting first posted a total of 133 in the allotted 20 overs. Whereas in reply Sixers went on to win the match by seven wickets and 22 balls remaining.
Cutting while fielding for thunders in the second inning took a flying catch at the boundary to send opponent opener Vince to the pavilion.
In the second ball of the third over, Brendan Doggett of Thunders bowled an outside-the-off stump delivery to Vince, on which the Sixers’ opener tried to smash an off-side boundary. The ball was going with a rocket speed, and it almost seemed a six until Ben Cutting emerged from nowhere and pulled off the stunner.
Ben judged the ball perfectly and dived full length to his right to get hold of the ball and was later seen celebrating.
It was an important wicket for Thunders as Vince had scored an unbeaten 91 against the Melbourne Stars in his last match.

Apart from this, the Thunders all-rounder also played a quick cameo in the first inning and scored 26 off 15 balls with five fours. He also bowled 4 overs and gave away just 14 runs, but his effort went in vain, as the Stars lost the game.
