Chris Martin will miss all of New Zealand's tour of Bangladesh due to fitness concerns.
The seam bowler sustained hamstring and back injuries while playing county cricket for Warwickshire and had already been ruled out of the one-day leg of the Black Caps' visit.
And it has now been confirmed he will also miss the two-match Test series that follows the one-dayers.
"With such a big season ahead it would have been foolish to rush Chris back too early," said selector Dion Nash in a statement.
"He is better off at home working on his fitness and strength."
Mark Gillespie, who is already in Bangladesh with the one-day squad, has been called up to replace Martin in the Test party.
New Zealand's tour consists of one-day internationals in Mirpur (Oct 9 and 11) and Chittagong (Oct 14), followed by Tests in Chittagong (Oct 17-21) and Mirpur (Oct 25-29).
