Impressive Conway happy with his play against spin

Devon Conway - Chennai Super Kings - CSK

Devon Conway scored a chanceless hundred in the third ODI against India. The New Zealand opener said that he has learned to attack spin and is now comfortable playing in Asian conditions. 

Conway was excellent against spin and used his feet quite a lot against the spinners. When spinners bowled short, he efficiently used the depth of the crease. He also used both sweeps to negate the threat of the spinners. 

The New Zealand batter has been a vital cog in the New Zealand side since his debut for the blackcaps. The 31-year-old has been a late bloomer in international cricket but is not wasting time anymore. He is keenly looking forward to the world cup and is constantly looking to improve.

Certainly pretty happy with how things have gone: Conway

“I’m certainly pretty happy with how things have gone, personally, over the last month-and-a-half,” the 31-year-old said at the post-match press conference. “There’s been a lot of learning for me, how to attack spin in the subcontinent. I’ve had to learn how to sweep, reverse sweep and put bowlers under pressure as much as possible.”

“I’ve been very fortunate to have good experience in our group. We had Kane [Williamson] with us in Pakistan, it gave me the opportunity to have those conversations with him and Tommy Latham – guys who’ve played here in these conditions quite often – and see how they go about it. For me, I can take a lot of learning moving forward, especially for the World Cup coming up,” he added.
