The match will be played during the day because of a lack of flood lights at the newly built Dr. Gokaraju Liala Gangaaraju ACA Cricket Ground in Mulapadu.

BCCI made the change after consulting with New Zealand Cricket. First-class cricket in India made the pink ball debut in the previous edition of the Duleep Trophy in 2016.
