In the game between Delhi and Chennai, Devon Conway played a huge role as he scored his third consecutive half-century in the season. The men in yellow were asked to bat first by Rishabh Pant after winning the toss. The opening pair of Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad gave the team a perfect start.

The New Zealander was hitting the ball all over the field, with Gaikwad providing excellent support. Conway raced to his half-century, but Gaikwad (41) could not hold on for long. He was dismissed in the 11th over by Anrich Nortje. The duo added a partnership of 110 runs. After his dismissal, Conway slowed down a bit.

He scored 87 runs in 49 balls, with seven fours and five sixes in the innings. He was dismissed by Khaleel Ahmed in the 17th over by a short ball that took the edge of his bat and went to Rishabh Pant's gloves behind the stumps.

His previous two fifties came against Hyderabad and Bangalore. He scored 85 runs in 55 balls against Hyderabad and 56 runs in 37 balls. Notably, Conway was dropped out of the playing XI after the first game. Upon his return, he has scored three half-centuries in three games.

Twitter was elated with his consistent performance this season. Fans were happy with him scoring consecutive half-centuries. "Brilliant batting & consistency by #devonconway! This was expected and he lives up to it," wrote a fan.

Returning to the game, Shivam Dube (32 runs in 19 balls) and MS Dhoni (21 runs in eight balls) delivered flawless cameos to help Chennai achieve 208 runs in the first innings.
