Wellington - New Zealand Cricket says it is
enthusiastic about playing a day-night Test in India later this year but
several hurdles have to be jumped before the match can be confirmed.
Indian Cricket secretary Anurg Thakur said
on Thursday the itinerary for the New Zealand tour would include the first
day-night test to be played in Asia.
NZC's head of cricket operations Lindsay
Crocker said New Zealand "hadn't considered that would be an option so
there's a bit of water to go under the bridge from our side."
Crocker said there would need to be more
information about the venue and the quality of its lights, playing conditions
and practice opportunities. He said there would also be discussions with New
Zealand players and team management.
