Devon Conway: The Late Bloomer

Even in his mid-20s, Devon Conway would have laughed at the idea of making it as an international cricketer. Having made his first class debut as a teenager back in 2009, he could never find the runs or the consistency to get on to the selectors’ radar in his native country, South Africa. In 2017, he moved thousands of miles east to New Zealand. Devon Conway plays for New Zealand cricket team and Chennai Team in the Indian T20 League.

There Conway started to find the runs that had eluded him back home, hundreds of them. In the first class arena, as well as in white-ball cricket, he just couldn’t stop scoring. By the time his 3-year qualification period was over, New Zealand’s selectors were convinced he was ready to play for the Black Caps.

Devon Conway: Recent Seasons

Having announced himself with a dazzling 59-ball 99* in a T20I against Australia in February 2021, Conway scored a double hundred on his Test debut against England, bringing up the landmark with a six. After going on to star in New Zealand’s victory over India in the first-ever Test Championship final, the Chennai team bought him at the Indian T20 League auction that preceded the 2022 season.

It hasn’t all been plain sailing for Conway, though. A self-inflicted injury forced him to miss the T20 World Cup final in 2021 and on his return to England earlier this year, he had an average Test series as New Zealand were thrashed 3-0. Despite that, he still averages more than 50 in each form of the game and has yet to be dismissed for a duck. With Ross Taylor having retired, the 31-year-old Conway looks likely to have a big part to play as New Zealand build for the future.

With a solid defense and a wide range of strokes, Conway has become known for his ability to bat long periods without getting bogged down. When he made 327 for Wellington against Canterbury in the Plunket Shield in 2019, it took him just 352 balls.

Devon Conway’s Indian T20 League Journey

After such a thrilling start to his international career, it was slightly surprising that there wasn’t more interest in Conway during the mega Indian T20 League auction for the 2022 season. The Chennai team picked him up at his base price of ₹1 crore. It was a disappointing campaign for the defending champions, who failed to make the play-offs. But when given an extended run, Conway impressed, making 252 runs at an excellent strike rate of 145.66.

  • Conway topped the averages for Chennai in the 2022 season.
  • Of those who crossed 100 runs for Chennai in 2022, only Shivam Dube had a better strike rate than Conway’s.
  • Only Ruturaj Gaikwad matched his tally of 3 fifties for Chennai in 2022, but he played twice as many matches.
