Kanpur: Indian Cricket team will play its 500th Test match at the Green Park here when Virat Kohli led Test side will lock horns with New Zealand in the first Test of the three-match series from September 22. Preparations regarding the Test match are on its final phase.

Daljit Singh said:
- Indian team head coach Anil Kumble wants good practice pitch.
