New Zealand batter Devon Conway cannot do anything wrong at the moment. The southpaw is making batting look ridiculously easy, and has managed to make a terrific start to his Test career. Before the second Test match against Bangladesh, the southpaw had already scored four 50+ scores. In the ongoing second Test match at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, Conway managed to get to his fifth score of 50 or more and became the first batter to score 50+ runs in his first five innings.

Conway made his Test debut against England and managed to make it memorable by scoring an epic 200 at Lord’s in 2021. It was an innings full of character against a quality English attack. The southpaw had already managed to impress in T20Is and 50-over format. The ultimate test of his character though remained in the longest format of the game. The 30-year-old did not disappoint and displayed great determination and character in his debut Test innings.

Later, Conway scored a sensational 80 in the second Test match in Edgbaston. The southpaw continued to show his credentials against India in the summit clash of the Test Championship (TC). The 30-year-old scored 54 and helped New Zealand win the inaugural edition in Southampton. Conway cemented his place in the team and become the talk of the town. After a gap of six months, Conway made a great start in 2022 and scored a phenomenal 122 in the first Test against Bangladesh.

He also achieved a rare feat of scoring hundreds in debut Test innings in home and away conditions. In the ongoing second Test match, the southpaw is currently unbeaten on 99 and needs one run to get to his third Test hundred.
