New Zealand’s Devon Conway who earned his Test debut against England just a few days back proved why he was selected. His sheer brilliance on the field made his debut even more impressive, putting up a score of an unbeaten 162 till Day 2’s lunch break after the left-handed batsman opened the match on Day 1. In his first Test match itself, he set a record with the highest runs by a men’s Test debutant in England.
Riding high on Conway’s ton New Zealand looks strong at 314-7 on Day 2 of Test 1 against England on Wednesday. Conway became the sixth cricketer to score a Test ton in his debut at Lord beating Sourav Ganguly’s131 in his debut at Lord’s in 1996 and Conway broke that record too by scoring 136 on Day 1.
