The PSL’s cricket is “second to none”: Ben Cutting
Ben Cutting, an Australian cricketer for the Karachi Kings, has said that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is the best cricket league in the world.
The Karachi Kings picked the 36-year-old for PSL 8. He has played for Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators before, so this will be his fourth time in the league.
His wife, Erin Holland, is also one of the league’s hosts.
When asked what kept bringing him and his wife back to Pakistan, the Australian cricketer said, “The people and culture of Pakistan.”
“We come here all the time. I’m in Pakistan for the fifth time. I think this is also Erin’s fifth or sixth. So, every year we look forward to it. Coming back to the PSL, the country of Pakistan, and the friendly people there, he said, “The level of cricket is great.”
“I can’t wait to get back out there and play in front of a full house, whether it’s in Karachi, Multan, Lahore, or Islamabad. It can be exciting to play in front of a crowd of people from your own country again,” the Australian cricketer said.
Ben Cutting said that the PSL is different from other leagues because the competition is so strong. He was talking about how good the cricket is in the PSL.
“A lot of guys who haven’t been to the PSL or played in it ask me what it’s like, and I always tell them that the cricket is the best in the world. Every team has three or four bowlers who score between 140 and 145. They have great spinners, and everyone can hit the ball out of the park. So, “you know, as a bowler, it’s always going to be hard to face batters of your level,” he said.
He said that the Karachi Kings have a lot of power this year because James Vince joined the team and Sharjeel can also hit the ball out of the park.
“You can’t put too much stock in what happened in the past for each team, because the teams are different and the circumstances are different. This year, it’s a little bit cool. So, we won’t look back. Instead, we’ll look forward. He said, “I’d like to win the first few games and get into the tournament. What happened last year doesn’t really matter.”
The all-around bowler also said that he was excited to bowl against Babar Azam in the tournament because he is always a great challenge and a very good batter.
When asked if the Kings will miss Babar Azam this year, he said, “Well, it’s a bit of a loss for Karachi, but we fill that gap very, very well.”
