If this happens, it will be the first time in cricket history.
According to cricket website ESPN Cricinfo, India won their first day-night Test against Bangladesh in Kolkata by an innings difference.

India too would like to play more day-night test: Eddings
Earl Eddings told the website, "If you want to increase trust between each other and strengthen the relationship, then you should talk to each other." He (India) easily won his first day-night test. Now they should move towards this. I have no doubt that they would like to play one or more day-night tests. We will talk to them (BCCI) in this matter in January. "
India serious about test format
Eddings said, "Playing the day-night test is a good idea for the Indian team. This shows that they are serious about this format. I hope to meet the new president of BCCI and talk about it, "he said." It is in my heart to ask him to day-night all four matches. Whereas my mind says that it would be right to play only one pink ball test. "
