When fast bowlers connect the ball, it often refuses to leave the orbit especially if the bowler is gifted with a robust, broad, and strong physique. Add more thunder to it if the bowler in question knows how to bat a bit. Australia s Ben Cutting falls exactly under that category. A bowler who can use the long handle to devastating effect down the order, Cutting has a reputation of hitting colossal sixes.

During the 2017-18 JLT One-Day Cup Cutting smashed a six that travelled in excess of four kilometres (or at least that was what the commentator said). The ball, as the commentators like to say, was in the arc. Cutting went deep into his crease, and boom he went. You can, like James Faulkner, check how far the ball went.
