The Chennai Super Kings had a mixed performance in the 2022 Indian Premier League and came in ninth place, which was disappointing. Ravindra Jadeja was given leadership by the team’s famous wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni before the start of the season, but Dhoni took over after Jadeja resigned midway through the campaign. It turns out, however, it wasn’t the only contentious incident during CSK’s season.

Josh Little, a 23-year-old star from Ireland, has recently admitted that he departed the team only two weeks after joining them. It seems that this was because he was being used as a “net bowler,” whose services were needed when the other bowlers were “weary.”

Little admitted to being “naive” at the moment in a conversation with Cricbuzz, but said that CSK “may never have him back.”

He remarked, “I was told it was something it wasn’t. “I was informed before I went that I’m a net bowler and there’s a possibility I play if someone gets hurt. However, I was unable to bowl when I desired. During practice, I would get two overs and exclaim, “Two overs, I’m halfway across the globe here!” I may have been foolish since I had a successful year behind me from playing in the Lankan Premier League and T10. It didn’t feel appropriate since I play cricket for my country. Because they had never had that kind of exposure, the other men were eager to participate. I was like, “Get me out of here,” when I learned that I was a net bowler who had to bowl at someone when the slingers were worn out. As a result, they probably won’t ever hire me again since I quit after two weeks, Little said.

However, the Irish teenager will be auctioned off as part of the Indian Premier League on December 23. Little, who has 62 wickets in 53 T20Is so far and has played for Dambulla Giants in the Lankan Premier League, is one of the favorites for the auction, according to former Chennai Super Kings player Suresh Raina. In The Hundred, where Little represented Manchester Originals, he also took part.
