New Zealand's fast bowler Tim Southee has been ruled out of the third and final Test between the Black Caps and South Africa on Saturday in Hamilton due to injury.
Southee, 28, has suffered a hamstring injury and will no longer take part in the Black Caps' Test series against the Proteas.
The Black Caps' other star bowler Trent Boult was back at training today and could possibly replace his injured teammate.
New Zealand's bowler Tim Southee is congratulated on taking a wicket by Black Caps teammate Henry Nicholls.
Boult, 27, was left out of the second Test match loss to South Africa in Wellington after suffering a hip and pelvis injury.
