Kevin Pietersen's plans to play in the Indian Premier League have been scuppered by injury, according to reports.

The batsman, who has dominated proceedings this week after again being told he has no future with England despite a career-best 355 not out for Surrey, did not field on the final day of their LV= County Championship Division Two victory over Leicestershire due to a calf injury which required a scan.

It was later reported that the injury will keep him out of action for two weeks.

Pietersen had been expected to fly out to India on Friday to join up with Sunrisers Hyderabad. Instead, he tweeted a picture of himself on Wednesday evening boarding a private jet and wrote: "Off to Dubai. Night guys x".
