The BCCI had experimented with the pink ball during the ongoing Duleep Trophy and it will now extend its trial to the second unofficial Test, according to a report in ESPNcricinfo.

However, the match would be played during the day as opposed to the practice of playing under lights due to the absence of floodlights at the newly built Dr Gokaraju Liala Gangaaraju ACA Cricket Ground in Mulapadu.

The BCCI consulted New Zealand Cricket before taking the decision.

India A had won the first unofficial Test against New Zealand A by an innings and 31 runs with spinners Karn Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem sharing 16 wickets between them.
