IPL 2023 Auction: I look forward to playing under Hardik Pandya, says Joshua Little

On Friday, Joshua Little became the first Ireland player to be picked in IPL auction. Defending champions Gujarat Titans roped him for Rs 4.4 crores in the IPL mini auction held in Kochi on Friday.

The 23-year-old is excited to play under Titans’ captain Hardik Pandya and coach Ashish Nehra.

“I look forward to playing under Hardik Pandya within such a high-quality squad. I’m also looking forward to working with coach Ashish Nehra and would like to thank the management team at the Titans for believing in me,” he told the Irish Times.

I have loved playing international cricket for Ireland – and that will always remain my priority, but to be able to learn and play in the IPL will be an incredible opportunity and thanks to Cricket Ireland for supporting me in this,” he said.

Gujarat Titans opened the bid for Little before Lucknow Super Giants entered the fray. However, the Titans persisted with him and eventually acquired his services

Little became just the sixth bowler to pick up a hat-trick in a men’s T20 World Cup game. In seven matches at the T20 World Cup, Little picked up 11 wickets at an economy rate of 7.00.
