Ben Cutting only took one wicket in the CPL fixture against the Tallawahs, and it was the result of an absolutely howling LBW call.
The Aussie bowler lined up GD Phillips, produced a quality yorker and then appealed to the umpire with conviction.
The appeal resulted in a send-off for the Jamaica Tallawahs’ opening batsman, but the replays showed he definitely should have remained at the crease.
Upon review, the ball was missing leg stump by a mile.
It was too late for the unlucky batsman who had already received his marching orders.
“The length is good, it’s a good yorker,” said the commentator
“But that is missing leg stump by about nine inches.”

Despite the howling call working in favour of Cutting’s team, the Tallawahs were simply too good for the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
The Tallawahs managed 178/4 in their fixture against the Patriots, with the opening batsmen putting on a decent lead with 65 from 6.2 overs.
If Phillips’s dismissal was overturned due to the blatant mistake, the pair certainly would have capitalised on their 50-run partnership from just 31 balls to start the match.
Cutting finished the match on 1-26 from a four over spell, and only managed two with bat-in-hand.
It’s not the first time Cutting has been involved in a Carribbean Premier League gaffe, after he copped a rude gesture from Pakistani bowler Sohail Tanvir.
Tanvir’s Warriors were hit with a fine of 15% of his match fee, after making the gesture against the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
The CPL revealed Tanvir admitted to a breach in the code of conduct.
Cutting was playing in the CPL fixture last week when he received a double finger salute after being dismissed by Tanvir.
Tanvir was caught on camera raising the middle finger of both his hands in Cutting’s direction after clean-bowling him.
The Pakistani appeared to be upset that Cutting hit him for six on his previous delivery.
The Patriots will come up against David Warner’s St. Lucia Stars in their next CPL fixture.
