India is set to host a day-night Test during New Zealand's visit later this year.

Anurag Thakur, the BCCI secretary, said that the BCCI would use the pink Kookaburra ball for the Test match.

There have been widespread concerns over the pink Kookaburra - particularly its durability and its visibility - and the Adelaide Test last November, the first ever to be played under floodlights, was played on a grassier-than-normal surface to ensure the ball lasted 80 overs.

South Africa's players, including their Test captain AB de Villiers, have expressed their reluctance to play a day-night Test during their 2016-17 tour of Australia.
