India want extra New Zealand Test

India have requested to play an extra Test on their tour of New Zealand in March to help recoup some of the $25m lost after the Mumbai terror attacks.

The Indian cricket board cancelled two one-day internationals against England and a proposed tour of Pakistan following the attacks.

The Champions Trophy, due to be held in Pakistan, was also postponed.

India are currently scheduled to play two Tests, five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 match in New Zealand.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed it was hoping to generate extra funds by adding another Test to the tour.

"We have requested New Zealand to accommodate an extra Test to the series," said Ratnakar Shetty, from the BCCI.

"We are waiting for a response from them."
