Cricket World Player of the Week - Devon Conway
New Zealand's explosive left-hand batsman Devon Conway now has scores of 50, 69*, 91*, 93* and 99* form his last five T20 appearances.
In a T20I where run scoring was not the easiest with the ball swinging around a fair bit, Devon Conway looked a class apart. After New Zealand were struggling at 19/3 in the first T20 of the five-match series between New Zealand and Australia, Conway ensured that the home team had a good recovery.
He ultimately ended up unbeaten on 99 off just 59 deliveries, smashing 10 fours and 3 sixes while batting at a strike rate of 167.80.
Conway made the most of the last over of the innings, bowled by Kane Richardson and needed just two runs to reach his maiden T20I century off the last delivery, but could only manage a single.
That aside, it was a brilliant knock and took New Zealand to 184, which was 20 runs too many given the conditions in Christchurch.
Conway recently guided Wellington to the Super Smash 2020-21 title. He struck 555 runs from 10 matches at an average of 56.88 and a strike rate of 135.2 to finish as the second-highest scorer in the competition. He also struck five half-centuries in the tournament.
In the final against Canterbury, Conway clobbered an unbeaten 93 off just 63 balls to help Wellington win the final by 5 wickets and lift the Super Smash trophy.
