WORCESTERSHIRE'S Ross Whiteley is to play in the Pakistan Super League early next year for Multan Sultans.

The County all-rounder has already tasted T20 action in the Bangladesh Premier League for Sylhet Sixers and played in the inaugural T10 tournament in Sharjah this winter.

Now he will switch back to T20 mode as part of the Sultans squad in a competition which runs from February 22 until March 25.

Also part of the Sultans line-up are Kumar Sangakkara, Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Shoaib Malik, Umar Gul, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan and Imran Tahir.

Whiteley will fly out to the UAE in mid-February to prepare for the tournament.
