Conway was ruled out of the T20 World Cup final against Australia after breaking his hand while punching the bat during the semi-final against England.


"It's a shame for Devon to miss out on the first series of the new World Test Championship cycle, but it also offers up an opportunity for someone else," Coach Gary Stead said.


"Daryl's versatility means he can cover a lot of batting positions and he's certainly got plenty of confidence at the moment. He's proven he can perform in Test cricket and I know he's excited to rejoin the Test group."


New Zealand will start the tour with the T20I series on November 17 while the two-match Test series will commence on November 25 in Kanpur.
