"Contrary to the news rounds through various sites, have not signed Warwickshire or any other county," Ishant, who is part of India's Test squad in Sri Lanka, tweeted.

The 28-year-old has been out of favour in the series which India won 3-0. Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav have been playing ahead of him in the spin-friendly Sri Lankan conditions, with all-rounder Hardik Pandya as the third seaming option.

Earlier, it was reported that along with Ishant, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will play county cricket for Worcestershire and batsman Cheteshwar Pujara will continue his stint with Nottinghamshire.
