Star reveals details of BBL walk out
Cutting is the Heat’s highest wicket-taker (63 scalps) and second-highest run-scorer (1109 runs) in BBL history.
After the Thunder quickly secured his signature in the off-season, Cutting admitted he was eager to “stick it” to his former teammates.
“Most of those (current Heat players) are great mates of mine, and a lot of them are coming to my wedding,” Cutting said.
“But I still want to stick it into them on the cricket field.”
Cutting played 11 short-format matches for Australia between 2013 and 2017, before announcing his retirement from first-class cricket in 2018.
