Cutting, the right-arm seamer from Australia, came close to national selection last year when he was named in the Test squad to play New Zealand at the Gabba. He was the leading wicket-taker in the 2009-10 Sheffield Shield season with 46 wickets at an average of 23.91.
Abbott, the right-arm seamer from South Africa, took eight wickets from ten games for the Dolphins in the MiWay T20 Challenge. He also has 85 first-class wickets.
"I am excited about Kyle and Ben being a part of our squad," said Kings XI's bowling coach Joe Dawes. "Both these seamers are young and talented and have the right spirit to lead the team to great heights."
Broad, the England allrounder, was ruled out in order to continue his rehabilitation from injury. He sustained an injury to his right calf during England's recent tour of Sri Lanka. Broad also missed the 2011 IPL season after sustaining a rib injury. Sathish, formerly with Mumbai Indians, is recovering from a knee injury.
