“Congrats to Josh Little who is heading off on a development opportunity with the Chennai Super Kings in the early stages of the upcoming IPL. The experience as a net bowler for CSK should be fantastic,” wrote Cricket Ireland in its appreciation tweet.
Little began his international career in a T20I match against Hong Kong way back in September 2016 but unfortunately couldn’t pick a wicket. However, the left-arm seamer was exceptional in his ODI debut against England as he uprooted four wickets, of which one was English skipper Eoin Morgan.
