India to play D/N Test with New Zealand later this year.

India is all set to play it’s first ever D/N test match later this year against New Zealand,if everything goes according to the plan. The first ever International D/N test match was played between Australia and New Zealand in November last year at Adelaide Last year.

Speaking to the media BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur  said

We want to try out pink Kookaburra balls in the Duleep Trophy and get the feedback.We surely want to play a day-night Test later this year.

While we have not zeroed in on the venue there are lots of factors that need to be taken into the account. Things like dew factor,how the spinners bowl with the pink kookaburra on Indian pitches, these things will become clear during the Duleep Trophy.

If BCCI adopts the D/N test it would be a big step forward in the acceptance of D/N test in the cricket circuit.
