Allrounder Chris Morris will return home from South Africa's touring party in New Zealand on Friday, reducing their contingent of quicks to five.

With offspinner Dane Piedt joining the squad at the weekend, to bolster the spin options for the Hamilton Test, Morris has been deemed surplus to requirements.

That means Morris' hopes of adding to his two Test caps, which he earned against England last January, will have to wait until at least July when South Africa travel to England.

Morris' departure leaves South Africa with Wayne Parnell and Duanne Olivier was back-up to the pace pack of Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel.
