new Delhi. Joshua Little was bought by Gujarat Titans for Rs 4.4 crore in the mini-auction in Kochi on Friday, 23rd December. With this, Josh has become the first cricketer from Ireland to get an IPL contract. Although Little is the first player from his national team to be a part of an IPL franchise, he is not the first player from his country. Because Eoin Morgan is the first Irish player to play in the IPL after going to England internationally.

Josh Little, 23, is a left-arm fast bowler who has represented Ireland in 22 ODIs and 53 T20Is since making his international debut in 2016. Josh Little was brilliant in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. This young player took 11 wickets in seven matches at an average of 17.18, including a hat-trick against New Zealand.

Even though Josh Little has just got the IPL contract, but he became a part of the IPL earlier this year itself. The young player was associated with Chennai Super Kings as a net bowler earlier this year, but within two weeks he left Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. Josh recently shared his bad experience with CSK. The 23-year-old player had said that he was misled by being told that if someone gets injured, he would get a chance to play, but that was not the case.

Josh Little told Cricbuzz, “I was told that it was not like that. Before I left, I was told that I am a net bowler and if someone gets injured, I am likely to play. But I couldn’t bowl when I wanted to, I used to get two overs (in training) and think, ‘Two overs, I’ve come here having played halfway around the world!’ Maybe I was naive and straightforward. I played in Lanka Premier League and T10, I had a good year. I am an international cricketer. I didn’t find it right.”

The Irish player further said, “When I came to know that I am a net bowler who needs someone to bowl when the slingers are tired, it was like ‘get me out of here’ for me. That’s probably why they’ll never take me back, because I left after two weeks.”
