Australian cricketer Ben Cutting suffered a “bad” blow to his helmet in a Big Bash League (BBL) game between the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder at the Adelaide Oval on Friday. Striker pacer Daniel Worrall delivers a short-pitched delivery; Cutting tries to duck him but he is undone at a high speed on the ball. Despite countering the blows, Cutting stood motionless for a few seconds and later gave a big thumbs up after Worrall tried to check on him.

Cutting certainly felt the force of the shock as he stepped aside and took off his helmet.

However, the all-rounder, who opened the batting for Thunder, continued to bat after scoring 37 off 32 balls. In the end, he was dismissed by Peter Siddle in the 10th over.

Jason Sangha hit an unbeaten 91 off 55 balls as Thunder posted 187 for three in 20 overs.

In reply, the Strikers were reduced to 165 for seven as the Thunder won the match by 22 runs.

Daniel Sams took four wickets while Saqib Mahmood also took two wickets for the Thunder.


The match was on the verge of being postponed after four players from the visiting team – Alex Hales, Alex Ross, Sam Whiteman and Tanveer Sangha – tested positive for Covid.

However, South Australia Health sanctioned the game under strict biosecure protocols, which would require Thunder players to stay separate from each other and team of strikers.
