NZ vs BAN: Devon Conway becomes first player to score 1st innings 50+ score in first 5 Tests
A memorable run in international cricket by New Zealand’s batter Devon Conway. He took up his 50-plus score in as many Test matches.
At Hagley Oval in Christchurch. NZ Vs BAN, New Zealand’s batsman Devon Conway turns out to be the first-ever player to achieve a 50 plus score in the 1st inning of every 1st five-Test on the 1st day of the second Test. And, he achieved the record on the way to his undefeated knock of 99 runs
Conway, who made his Test debut in the England series in June last year. And declared himself in red-ball cricket. With an amazing double hundred at Lord’s has improved to international cricket like a fish to the water. After an amazing start in white-ball cricket.
In the second innings at NZ Vs BAN, he was dismissed for 23, but he tailed up his remarkable double tonne with an 80-run first-innings effort at Edgbaston.
Devon Conway’s 3rd game was against India in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, and he sustained his decent form by hitting 54 runs in the first innings at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.

Because of his injury, the left-hander missed the two-match series against India. But came back for the Bangladesh series. And started it on a high note with a 122-run knock at the Bay Oval. And has now added another score to his count.

Sunil Gavaskar has a 50-plus score in every of his first 6 Test matches, but the Master didn’t have a 50-plus score in every game’s maiden innings. Gavaskar scored 65 and 67*, 116 and 64*, 1 and 117*, 124 and 220, 4 and 53, 57 and 24 in his first 12 innings.
The 30-year-old has 613 runs in 9 innings. And has been a compact backer of stand-in skipper Tom Latham, who came close to a dual century on the day.
