The Black Caps veteran has a grade one calf injury, but he is expected to play in New Zealand’s upcoming tour of England.
Taylor’s injury occurred on the first day of New Zealand’s training camp in Lincoln, and an MRI confirmed his prognosis.
The 37-year-old will stay with the team until he recovers from his injury, with the aim of returning to batting and running next week before flying to England.
Taylor, the Black Caps’ all-time leading Test run scorer with 7379 runs at an average of 45.83, seems to be a vital player for New Zealand in England.
Kane Williamson’s side is scheduled to play two Tests against England, beginning on June 2 and June 10, before meeting India in the ICC World Test Championship Final in Southampton, which begins on June 18.
The first of two three-day boot camps for New Zealand is currently underway.
