The hat-trick bagged by the left-arm seamer Little is the second of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 as UAE’s Karthik Meiyappan took a hat-trick against Sri Lanka National Cricket Team in Round 1 in Geelong.

Speaking after picking up a hat-trick against New Zealand, Joshua Little, who has bagged 39 T20I wickets in 2022 which is the most by any player in a calendar year, stated:

“I guess it was a little bit of tail back into the left-handers, wanted to execute it two times in a row and I got lucky to have managed it. I think I was a bit short early on, then went a bit greedy and went full. I don’t see why we can’t chase this down, time for another upset in this World Cup.”
