New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson has opted out of the upcoming three-match T20I series against India to prepare for the test series against the hosts.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has also opted to rest and both players will train with the Test squad ahead of the first match in Kanpur.

"We decided through talking with Kane and Kyle that they won't play in this T20 series.They're both going to get ready for the test matches and I think you'll find there will be other guys involved in the test matches that won't play the entire series either,” Stead said.

"It's a bit of a balancing act at the moment and with three T20 games in five days plus travel to three different cities it's a very, very busy time,"

The Test series starts on Thursday (November 25) with the first match at the Green Park in Kanpur. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the second Test from December 3.

“You’ll definitely see that the whole squad will get match time over here and that’s about us managing the workload of the players, especially with the test matches coming up for us, which will be a real key priority for us as we work through the next week,” Stead added.
