New Zealand opener Devon Conway: New Zealand starter Devon Conway believes that beating India at their home conditions will be almost as important as winning the World Test Championship final. New Zealand is scheduled to tour India from November to December.
- Beating India in their backyard will be as big as winning WTC Final, says Conway
- New Zealand are scheduled to tour India in November- December, later this year
- New Zealand will play two tests and three T20 international matches against India
The New Zealand starter Devon Conway said a win over India in their home conditions would be a great ambition for his team.
“Definitely. That’s a massive goal that we’d like to achieve. To beat India in their home conditions is probably a bigger challenge than beating them in England. It would be a serious achievement, if not as big as the World Test Championship final. That will be a very important series to try and prove that,” Conway
Conway, when asked about his thoughts on succeeding in subcontinental conditions, remarked, “Travelling to the subcontinent and being presented with surfaces that turn, that’s where you’ve got to be really strong mentally within your defence, trust your defence, and you’ve got to have a method in which you can score. If you’re not looking to score runs you won’t be in good positions. You’ve got to nail down a plan and stick to it as much as possible, even though it’s going to be challenging.”
Conway will compete in the Men’s T20 World Cup. In the United Arab Emirates before the two events against India in Kanpur and Mumbai.
Conway made a full recovery from a left middle finger injury. He sustained when he hit the Southern Braves at the Hundred in August. The 30-year-old discussed how he might fit into the lineup.
“We’ve got Martin Guptill up top and Tim Seifert who’s done really well, and you’ve got the master, Kane Williamson, at three. If I could slot in at four it would be really good for the team’s sake, try to manipulate those middle periods against spin and run hard between the wickets,” he said.
