Despite losing the ODI series against India, New Zealand batter, Devon Conway is pleased with how he tackled the spinners.

The southpaw is delighted to have added sweep and reverse sweep in his arsenal on the sub-continent tour (of Pakistan and India) ahead of the 50-over World Cup, scheduled to take place in India.

Conway slammed two centuries in the Test series against Pakistan, and slammed a quick-fire 138 in the third ODI against India as he successfully negotiated the spin threat in both the Asian countries.

Conway talks about spin threat

“I’m certainly pretty happy with how things have gone, personally, over the last month-and-a-half," Conway said at the post-match press conference.

“There’s been a lot of learnings for me, how to attack spin in the subcontinent. I’ve had to learn how to sweep, reverse sweep and put bowlers under pressure as much as possible."

“I’ve been very fortunate to have good experience in our group. We had Kane with us in Pakistan, it gave me the opportunity to have those conversations with him and Tommy Latham - guys who’ve played here in these conditions quite often - and see how they go about it."

The 31-year-old has been in exceptional form across all three formats. He scored a double century on his Test debut in 2021 and has never looked back since then. 

Conway will be next seen in action when the two teams collide against each other in the T20I series, starting from January 27.
