Gujarat Titans pace bowler Joshua Little is all set to leave the camp as he will take part in Ireland’s ODI series against Bangladesh, which is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 9. It is understood that the Irish pacer will return to the Titans after the conclusion of the series as well. Notably, Ireland will play against Bangladesh in a three-match ODI series on May 9 and will conclude on Sunday, May 14. Vikram Solanki, Director of Cricket-Gujarat Titans, has confirmed the pacer’s exit, citing national duty as well.
“We wish Josh (Little) the best as he heads back to represent Ireland in the ODIs. He has had a good run in his first Tata Indian Premier League, and we look forward to welcoming him back once he finishes the ODI series,” said Vikram Solanki, Director of Cricket-Gujarat Titans, as quoted by Sportstar.
However, the pacer has had a good season so far as he has bagged six wickets in eight outings in the ongoing IPL 2023 as well, with his best spell being 2/25. In his most recent outing against the Rajasthan Royals, Josua Little got the prized wicket of captain Sanju Samson and finished with economical figures of 1/24 in his four overs spell in the Titans’ comfortable win.
After the win, Hardik Pandya said: “I let Rashid handle the business with Noor. Nobody better to communicate. Not much I have to do, I only suggest on when to have a slip. They are very confident about what they want to do, we only have conversations when things aren’t going right. I feel Wriddhi is one of the best keepers, not easy to pick Rashid and Noor with their speeds. We are relaxed, doing our jobs and there are just a few chats that I or Ashu pa will have to pull up our socks when needed. I made some judgement errors in the last game, but today my job was half done by the time Shubman got out. I don’t shy away from accepting mistakes, accepting in key to succeed for me.”
