BCCI Host First Time Day-night Test against New Zealand this year


First Time Day-night Test

In order to raise the ever diminishing number of spectators in the stadium, the BCCI is all set to host its first-ever day and night cricket Test with the pink ball when New Zealand tour India. The main objective of the Duleep Trophy will be to check how the pink kookaburra behaves under the light in sub-continental conditions. It is expected that all leading Indian players will play in that Duleep game in order to get an idea and also give a feedback to the board before they go ahead with the Test match.

Duleep Trophy : The Duleep Trophy is a domestic first-class cricket competition played in India between teams representing geographical zones of India. The competition is named after Kumar Shri Duleepsinhji of Nawanagar . Central Zone are the current champions. The competition was started by the Board of Control for Cricket in India in the 1961–62 season.
