Wellington - Batsman Kane Williamson will miss the two remaining matches in New Zealand's limited-overs series against South Africa due to a wrist injury.

Williamson missed the opening six-wicket loss to South Africa at Mount Maunganui on Tuesday and subsequently been ruled out of second match at the same venue on Friday and the third in Hamilton on Monday.

Head coach Mike Hesson on Wednesday said Williamson had a ligament tear in his left wrist from the recent Champions League in India.

Hesson said Williamson needs "further rehabilitation on his wrist and it's not the time of year where we want to rush him."

Williamson joins leading batsman Ross Taylor in missing the series. Taylor has a calf muscle injury.
