New Zealand captain Kane Williamson may miss the upcoming two-match Test series against South Africa at home, said a report.

Williamson has been out of action since the Kanpur Test against India in November 2021 as he continues his recovery from an elbow injury.

While Kane Williamson is making useful progress in his rehabilitation from an elbow injury which has ruled him out of the last three tests for the Black Caps, the Test series against the Proteas starting in Christchurch on February 17 is likely to be regarded as too early to push him into top-flight action, said the report.

It is now expected that opener Tom Latham, who captained the team in Tests against Bangladesh, will continue in the role for the Tests against South Africa.
