Joshua Little Profile
November 1, 1999
Left-arm fast medium
A tall (contrasting to his name) left-arm seamer from Dublin, Little uses his early swing in the air, but is also capable of subtle movements off the seam. Little racked up his maiden List-A appearance for Leinster Lightning in the Inter-Provincial Cup 2018. His first-class debut followed a few weeks later.
Little made his T20I debut against Hong Kong on the 5th of September 2016, when he was a little older than 16 years, making him at that time the second-youngest to represent a nation on the International stage. Little represented Ireland at the 2016 U-19 World Cup, where he picked up four wickets in five games at an economy of 5.19.
Due to an exam, Little pulled out of his first major assignment for his country against Afghanistan in 2017. Making his debut in 2019, Little made instant impact with the ball, racking up figures of 4-45 against England that left the to-be World Champions in a spot of bother.
At the T20 World Cup 2022, Little picked up the first hat-trick of the edition against New Zealand, taking the wickets of Kane Williamson, Jimmy Neesham and Mitchell Santner and ended the tournament on a high with 11 wickets in 7 outings.
