Cape Town - Australian cricketer Ben Cutting's misjudged attempt at a catch in the Big Bash on Thursday left with with a bloody face.

The incident happened in the group stage fixture between the Melbourne Renegades and the Brisbane Heat, who Cutting plays for. 

Defending a target of 145, the Heat were in the field when Renegades opener Marcus Harris top-edged a delivery from James Pattinson. 

The ball went high into the Brisbane night sky as Cutting positioned himself to take the catch. 

Unfortunately for him, the ball went straight through has hands and instead smashed into his nose, leaving him bloodied and on the floor. 

Cutting still made a valiant effort at taking the catch after the ball hit him, and it took a ruling from the 3rd umpire to decide that he was not in control of the ball when he let it go. 

To his credit, Cutting was up with a smile on his face, but he was still forced to leave the field for treatment.
