New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori will play no part in the three-match home Twenty20 series with Pakistan in order to rest a sore back.
Vettori plans to consult a specialist over the injury and, in the meantime, will sit out the fixtures on December 26, 28 and 30.
The problem also saw him miss the opening game of his side's recent 5-0 one-day international series loss in India.
Vettori hopes to have recovered in time to lead the Black Caps in the first Test against Pakistan, which starts in Hamilton on January 7.
