Kane Williamson's men played in the inaugural match under lights when they faced Australia in Brisbane in 2015 - a game they lost by three wickets.

A further three day-night Tests have been held since, with Australia hosting two and the other taking place in Dubai between Pakistan and West Indies.

England are due to play their first against West Indies at Edgbaston this month and also have one pencilled in for December on their Ashes tour.
