Williamson has a small tear in his left elbow tendon that requires immediate treatment, New Zealand Cricket medical manager Dayle Shackel said in a statement.

“Kane’s been managing the elbow injury to varying degrees this summer and unfortunately it hasn’t improved,” Shackel said. “He obviously has a high volume of training and playing across the three formats which has inhibited his ability to recover.

“We believe he now needs a period of rest and rehabilitation to get the injury right.”

Williamson is unlikely to play for New Zealand at home again this summer.

The one-day internationals will be played on March 20, 23 and 26. Williamson will also likely miss three Twenty20s against Bangladesh on March 28, 30 and April 1 while traveling to the Indian Premier League.

He will rejoin New Zealand for its two-test series against England in May before the world test championship final against India at Southampton from June 18 to 22.
