New Zealand’s Trent Boult has been ruled out of the second Test against South Africa in Wellington with the leg injury he sustained in Dunedin.

Boult did not bowl after tea on the 4th day of the opening Test - when he was one of just two frontline seamers alongside Neil Wagner - and even with the final day's play being washed out there has not been enough time for him to recover.

Tim Southee, who was left out in Dunedin to allow New Zealand to accommodate two spinners, will replace Boult although the final XI will not be named until the morning.
