The spinner has been making waves in Europe for having a delivery that he bowls known as the fíflið or the backspinner, which when delivered with the fingers ripped under the ball, drops about half of its pace after bouncing, making it difficult for batsmen to time their shots.

“It’s unbelievable!” said a jubilant Jónsson.

“From watching the on my computer to possibly becoming the first Nordic player to play in it is beyond my wildest dreams. I’m ready and can’t wait to get started,” said Jónsson.

“This is what the Indian Premier League is all about,” said KXIP CEO Satish Menon.

“This proves that cricket is truly a global sport that knows no boundaries. To have a cricketer from Iceland in the league would be historic and a testament to our belief that opportunity doesn’t discriminate,”

he said.
