Colin Munro won't be allowed to play a part in the Big Bash League final.

The Black Caps batsman will be forced to miss Saturday's decider between the Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers, due to a clash in schedules.

Under New Zealand Cricket's agreement with its players, Black Caps are not allowed to travel the day before an international match.

Munro would be in violation of that rule as the Big Bash League final doesn't start until 9:15pm on Saturday in Perth, meaning he wouldn't be free to fly back to New Zealand until Sunday.

The Black Caps open their Chappell-Hadlee series against Australia on Monday at Eden Park.
