Little will return with the Ireland squad for that 10-team tournament, which also includes two previous world champions in Sri Lanka and the West Indies. However, he is currently taking a break after coming second to Gujarat Titans in an intense IPL final that lasted until the wee hours of Tuesday morning in Ahmedabad.

“That is something that goes above me and I have to support what is best for Josh, do I want him on my team? Of course. He is a brilliant bowler in the cue ball format. We’ve seen it on the biggest stage.

“Jose is Jose. We as a team want to promote Irish cricket to the best of our ability when we’re on the field, but he’s also doing it with what he’s achieving on the world stage. What he is doing at the moment is only good for Irish cricket and the development of the players who rise through the ranks.” said Andrew Balbirnie in a conversation with espncricinfo.com.

“I’m sure it does. [want to play Test cricket], but I know how busy you are and the pressures the IPL brings. You don’t want to come back from a game in front of 100,000 people with me saying, ‘Fancy playing 12 overs next week at Lord’s?’ You should also give him his space and make sure he is in a good frame of mind.” Andrew Balbirnie added.
