Twitter On Fire As Devon Conway Slams Century On Test Debut At Lord’s

New Zealand batter Devon Conway justified his selection with a brilliant century in the first Test against England at the Lord's Cricket Stadium

New Zealand batter Devon Conway justified his selection with a brilliant century in the first Test against England at the Lord’s Cricket Stadium in London. His century kept the Black Caps on top on the first day of the Test match.

Opting to bat first, the Kiwis got off to a fluent start thanks to Conway and Tom Latham. They added a 50-run stand for the first wicket. Apart from a couple of chances here and there, Conway dominated actions against a star-studded English bowling attack comprising of James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Mark Wood.

Another debutant, Ollie Robinson, who made a place in England’s pace attack drew the first blood removing Latham for 25 runs after getting his eyes in. Kane Williamson also followed thanks to a brilliant delivery from James Anderson but nothing could manage to break Conway’s concentration.

Devon Conway becomes 12th Kiwi batter to score Test century on debut

He went about his business putting the odd deliveries to the boundaries to keep New Zealand’s scoreboard ticking. Reeling at 86 for two, the Black Caps were in dire need of a partnership. Ross Taylor joined Devon Conway as both started the revival. Taylor, however, didn’t look convinced and was eventually out LBW by Robinson, who picked his second wicket of the match.

Since then, Conway and Henry Nicholls have held their fort tight and kept England bowlers at bay. Both the left-handers kept the scoreboard ticking while the odd-boundaries kept coming. The 29-year-old Devon Conway looked assured and composed since the start and has reached the landmark with a boundary.

Conway became the 12th Black Caps batter to score a century on debut and the first New Zealander to score a century on debut at the historic Lord’s.

Twitter was on fire as soon as Devon Conway touched the three-digit figure.
