Cape Town - New BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is keen for India to host day-night Test matches and insists he has the support of national team captain Virat Kohli.
Ganguly, a former India captain, was recently elected new chief of the Indian cricket and wants the powerful nation to join other top countries that have already host day-night Tests.
Australia has one Test with the pink ball every summer while England have also already hosted a game in the longest format under lights.
Ganguly said the BCCI have already had discussions and, contrary to popular belief, India skipper Kohli is on board with the idea.
In quotes published on ESPNCricinfo, Kohli said: "We all are thinking about this. We will do something about this.
"I am a big believer in day-night Tests. Kohli is agreeable to it. I see a lot of reports in newspapers that he is not, but that is not true.
"The game needs to go forward and that is the way forward.
"People should finish work and come to watch champions play. I don't know when that will happen, but it will."
India are preparing to host Bangladesh for three T20Is and two Tests next month with reports indicating that the second game in the longest format against the Tigers could be played under lights in Kolkata.
