Joshua Little took a hat-trick in the 19th over of Ireland's match against New Zealand, their final T20 WC Super 12 match. 

His wickets include those of the in-form Kane Williamson, James Neesham, and Mitchell Santner, stifling the Kiwi batters. 

This is the second hat-trick of the tournament, joining UAE spinner Karthik Meiyappan's feat against Sri Lanka in the first round.

This is also the second hat-trick but an Irishman in the history of the T20 World Cup.

The first hat-trick by an Irish pacer came at the hands of Curtis Campher, in the 2021 T20 World Cup. 

In that match, Campher took the wickets of Colin Ackermann, Ryan ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards and Roelof van der Merwe.

He is the sixth bowler to take a hat-trick in the T20 WC, after Brett Lee Wanindu Hasaranga,
Campher, Kagiso Rabada and Meiyappan.

Josh Little's crucial contribution also stemmed New Zealand's batting flow, restricting them to just 186 runs.
