Cutting praises PSL quality and reveals Karachi Kings strengths
Australian cricketer Ben Cutting of Karachi Kings has described the Pakistani Super League (PSL) as “second to none”.
Karachi Kings have selected the 36-year-old for PSL Season 8. He has previously played for Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators, making it his fourth season in the competition.
When reporters repeatedly asked what brought him and his wife to Pakistan, the Australian cricketer replied that it was “the people and culture of Pakistan”.
“We love coming here. This is my fifth visit to Pakistan. I think it’s also Erin’s fifth or sixth. So we look forward to it every year. Going back to the PSL and the country of Pakistan and the hospitality, the level of cricket is impressive,” he said.
“I can’t wait to come back in front of a full house, wherever we play, whether it’s Karachi, Multan, now Lahore, Islamabad. It can be very exciting to play in front of a home crowd again,” added the Australian cricketer.
Speaking about the quality of cricket in the PSL, Ben Cutting said the strength of competition makes this league different from other leagues.
“A lot of guys who haven’t been here and played PSL always ask me what it’s like and the quality of the cricket is second to none. You know, every team has three or four guys playing 140/145. They have great spinners and all hitters can hit out of the park. So it will always be difficult as a bowler that you know to assume your caliber of hitting,” he said.
Talking about the strength of Karachi Kings, he said the Kings have a lot of power this year with the arrival of James Vince in the team and Sharjeel can knock him out of the park as well.
