Teams Played For
An attacking left-handed batsman Devon Conway shifted to New Zealand as an already established cricketer in the South African domestic circuit. It was in the T20 series against West Indies in November 2020 when Conway became just the 2nd New Zealand player of South African origin after Grant Elliot to represent the national team. He impressed immediately with a half-century and a knock of 41 matches in the two matches he batted.
A top-order batsman, Conway relishes his opportunity to bat at the top of the order and enjoys his time in all formats of the game. His ability to adapt to different conditions and formats makes him a good option for New Zealand in the coming years. Born and raised in South Africa, Conway made his first-class debut for Gauteng against Eastern In Johannesburg in November 2009. Conway was a prolific run-scorer in the South African domestic circuit and almost played 100 first-class matches there before shifting to New Zealand in 2017.
After his arrival in New Zealand, Conway played for the University Club and made a mark in the New Zealand domestic circuit while plying his trade for the Wellington Firebirds in the Super Smash. He had to mostly remain i9n the shadows of Tom Blundell in the initial years but a call-up to the national team for Blundell paved way for Conway to become a permanent member in the squad. He went onto make his international debut for New Zealand in November 2020 after becoming eligible to play for the Kiwis in September.
