Devon Conway: Debutant Shined As He scored Double-Century at the Home of Cricket
Devon Conway has been able to repay the faith that the team showed in him as the player scored a century through his first test played in the New Zealand tour of England 2021.
He was among the first ones to be chosen to bat, alongside Tom Latham. The player had to play along with different partners as England successfully sent Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, and Ross Taylor to the benches. Conway stood strong and maintained the scoring spirit.
He registered the century as he scored 4 runs by flicking off his pads. The player scored 136 runs in total off 240 balls.
He became the 12th player from New Zealand to score a century on Test debut. Likewise, he registered on the 6th number of Century by a Debutant at the Lord’s. Sourav Ganguly had maintained the record as the top scorer on Test debut with 131 runs back in 1996 played at the same venue. Now, Coney shines at the top of the list.
The player paved the path to this achievement through various challenges, among which his shift from South Africa to New Zealand is a significant one.
Debutant Devon Conway continued his impressive innings on the second day of the first Test at Lord’s and scored a marvelous double-century including 22-fours and a six. He became the second New Zealand batsman to score a double century on Test debut and the highest score by a debutant in England in Test cricket history
