Williamson did not play in Tuesday's six-wicket loss in Tauranga and the coach Mike Hesson says he needs further rehabilitation on the ligament damage in his wrist, so will not play in the next two matches.

Ross Taylor has already been ruled out of the series with a shoulder injury, but Hesson says both are expected to be available for the Test series in Dubai.
