New Zealand's skipper Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the third Test match against Bangladesh as he failed to recover from a left pectoral muscle injury he sustained in the second Test match.

The head coach of Kiwis, Gary Stead, confirmed today that Williamson would be replaced by right-hand uncapped batsman Will Young.

"Kane is obviously a really important player for us, and with the nature of the injury, we could not be sure he would not aggravate it, he is improving every day and will continue his rehabilitation as planned," International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Stead as saying.

"Will has been waiting in the wings for a while now, and he will get a great opportunity batting at number three in a settled line-up, Stead added.

Williamson sustained the injury while fielding on the third day of the second Test and he was struggling when he came out to bat the next day.

The skipper did not take any part in the field on the fifth day and was taken to the hospital instead.

New Zealandhavealready taken an unassailable lead in the three-match Test series after defeating Bangladesh in the first two Test matches. The Kiwis would look to put up a dominant show in the third Test match as well.

New Zealand will take on Bangladesh in the third and final Test match on Saturday. (ANI)
