Devon Conway made his Test debut with a double century against England. He credited Neil Wagner for being able to do that. Conway stated that without Wagner’s contribution with the bat, he would not have reached a century.

Conway was just 14 runs from his double century when England picked New Zealand’s ninth wicket. That was when Wagner came to bat and smashed a quick 25* off 21 balls. It helped Conway make the 14 runs and reach a double century.

In a virtual press conference, Conway revealed how Wagner was shouting ‘go ball go ball’ when he hit a pull shot to get his double century. Conway praised Wagner’s good internet and how his assessment of the situation kept the innings going smoothly. He credited Wagner for his input and support in helping him achieve the double century milestone.

In previous matches as well Wagner has shown his capability with the bat. He is considered the best number 11 batsman in Tests cricket at the moment.
