New Zealand batsman Devon Conway was in a bit shock when he was asked to open in the recently concluded three-match T20I series against the West Indies, and added it surprised him that he was able to give his team a good start in all the games.
“I was a little bit shocked when I got asked to open the batting, so it was a nice surprise (to score at the top of the innings),” Conway said on SENZ Mornings.
Conway had scores of 43, 42 and 21 while partnering with seasoned opener Martin Guptill, and together they played a key role in the Black Caps winning the series 2-1.
Conway had not played international cricket since New Zealand’s forgettable tour of England in June, where they lost all three Tests, and the batter said his comeback has “been enjoyable”.
“I’m pretty happy with how things have gone. I would have liked to have sort of contributed more, especially in those knocks where I got starts. I got a couple of 40s, 20s (and) it would’ve been nice to have kicked on and got a big one but at the end of the day we still won the series, so (we’re) very happy in the camp altogether as a unit.”
After the T20I series, New Zealand will head to Australia for a three-match ODI series in September.
