OTD | New Zealand star batter Devon Conway was born in 1991

OTD | New Zealand star batter Devon Conway was born in 1991

New Zealand’s brilliant left-handed opener, Devon Conway, was born on July 8, 1991. He is one of the most dangerous players who can play confidently against any bowler. Conway has been an incredible batter for the Black Caps, who play well across all formats. He is also a perfect wicketkeeper who rarely misses any balls and quickly takes the catches. 

He moved to New Zealand at the age of 26 and was handed a contract by Wellington for the 2018-19 domestic season. The Johannesburg-born Conway was added to the New Zealand team at the age of 29, which is indeed an achievement for him. By this age, people usually stop playing any sport. However, he did the complete opposite, and within 2-3 years of his debut, he established himself as one of the best openers in New Zealand. 

He scored an incredible 152 runs in the opening game of the ODI World Cup 2023, which marked his arrival at the game. Not only in international cricket, he has also proved his worth in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he partnered with Ruturaj Gaikwad to help CSK win their fifth IPL title in 2023. He is an incredible batter against whom the bowlers must think twice before bowling. He has the unique gift of running between the wickets and scoring long sixes, which proves beneficial for the teams. 

If we look at his test career, he has played 20 matches and scored 1497 runs, with an average of 41.58. In ODIs, he has played 32 games and scored 1246 runs with an average of 44.50. Lastly, in the game’s shortest format, he has played 50 matches and scored 1408 runs with an average of 38.05.
