Journey of rising Devon Conway from South Africa to New Zealand

After underperformance in South Africa to now being close to an international cap for New Zealand, Devon Conway’s career has seen many twists and turns. He brought up his maiden first-class double-century for Gauteng at the provincial level and roared in Jubilation. That was the first in eight years of professional cricket for the left-handed batsman (Devon Conway).

That was his last innings played as a South African domestic cricketer. He was the leading run-scorer in the Plunket Shield, the Ford Trophy, and the T20 Super Smash in 2019-20. After that last inning in August, he left South Africa to play for the blackcaps. At the time of leaving, Conway played just 12 matches for the Lions with an average of 21.29 along with a half-century.  He arrived in Wellington in August 2017. He joined Victoria University Cricket Club in a dual capacity as player and coach.

Conway said that he had sold his property, car and everything that the family couldn’t bring over and because he wanted to close that chapter and start fresh innings of his life and if he had not done that, his cricket would not feel all right after one season. He might have started thinking on the lines of maybe he could move back but he did not want that. He further said that he is very happy and excited, but it’s not a guarantee that he will get an opportunity to play presently but hopefully one day he will get that chance. Now as he got the chance he scored a magnificent 100 on his debut along with leveling the record of Saurav Ganguly.
