broke grandfather’s big record
Conway is the sixth batsman overall to score a century on his debut at Lord’s. With this century, he has broken a 25-year-old record of former India captain Sourav Ganguly. In fact, in 1996, when Dada made his Test debut at this ground, he scored 131 runs. With that innings, he became the batsman to play the biggest innings at Lord’s in the debut match. But Conway played an unbeaten 136 on the very first day, that record has now been made in his name.
Trouble in WTC Finals
Conway, who played such a brilliant innings in his first match in England, can also become a problem in the World Test Championship against India. Conway has so far emerged as the best player for New Zealand in all three formats. Before coming to England, he had also said that he is working very hard to deal with the Indian spin bowlers. In such a situation, Virat Kohli’s team will have a big responsibility to stop him.
