Left-hander Devon Conway finished unbeaten just one run short of a magnificent century but led New Zealand’s comeback in the first T20I of the series against Australia at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. 

The hosts were dealt early blows when pacers Jhye Richardson and Daniel Sams routed the Blackcaps’ top order, but Devon Conway stitched valuable partnerships first with Glenn Phillips and James Neesham to power the hosts to 184 runs. He could not bring his first century in the shortest format and finished at 99 not out but put on a show to lead New Zealand's come back in the game.

Conway was watchful at the start of his innings, but increased his tempo as he got his eye in. He was particularly severe on the leg side and anything that was pitched in his half disappeared over the square leg fence. He brought his best score of 99 in T20Is on the back of 10 fours and three sixes.
