New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will miss the upcoming white-ball tour of India due to workload management, starting on January.

During his absence, Tom Latham will lead the Kiwis in the three-match ODI series against India. Williamson will return home after the Pakistan tour with Blackcaps head coach Gary Stead.

Newly-appointed Test captain Tim Southee will also return home after the Pakistan tour to prepare for the home Test series against England in February.

All-rounder Mark Chapman and pacer Jacob Duffy will replace Williamson and Southee in the squad for the India tour.

Meanwhile, pacer Kyle Jamieson still remains unavailable for selection as he recovers from a back injury. He last played for New Zealand in June.


For India: Tom Latham (c), Finn Allen, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Jacob Duffy, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Adam Milne, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley and Ish Sodhi.
