Josh Little won't play any part in the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League.

The Pembroke left-armer was due to play for Multan Sultans but didn't travel to Pakistan after suffering an injury during the SA T20.

There has been no official confirmation of the injury yet.

Little will be keen to be fully fit for the upcoming IPL, where he has a $500,000 contract.

He is currently back in Dublin receiving treatment.

Update from Cricket Ireland's Mark Rausa on Friday evening 24 Feb.

Mark Rausa, Head of Sport Science, Physiotherapy and Medical Services for Cricket Ireland said:

“Josh reported experiencing some tightness in his hamstring towards the end of his time in the SA20 League. After reporting this to medical staff at Pretoria Capitals, he was sent for an ultrasound scan that was inconclusive.

"Out of an abundance of caution, Josh decided to return home for further tests and treatment with the Cricket Ireland medical team. An MRI scan showed no significant injury in the hamstring, but he will remain in Dublin to complete a course of rehab, strength and conditioning and bowling workload management in preparation for the Indian Premier League (IPL) beginning the end of March, and a subsequent busy period of International cricket for Ireland.

"Due to this, he will therefore not take any part in the Pakistan Super League as originally planned.”
