Ben Cutting (born 30 January 1987 in Brisbane, Australia) is an Australian cricketer. A tall right-arm fast bowling All-rounder, Cutting represented Australia at the 2006 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka. He is contracted to the Queensland Bulls, and also made an appearance as a substitute fielder in the First Ashes Test of 2006–2007 season at the Gabba against England. He currently plays First Grade for Souths.

Cutting made his first-class cricket debut for the Queensland Bulls against Tasmania in the first Pura Cup game of the 2007/08 season and despite his first ball going for five wides,[2] ended up taking three wickets including that of Michael Di Venuto. In 2009–10 Cutting was one of the competition's leading wicket takers, with 25 wickets from his first six matches, raising hopes that he may be selected to represent Australia in Test cricket.[3] He finished the season as the leading wicket taker – 46 wickets at 23.91. This included a career best 6/37 against Tasmania, and led to speculation of a future international debut.[4]

On 13 January 2013 Cutting made his ODI debut and on 26 January 2013 he made his T20 international debut.
