That's A Massive Goal We'd Like To Achieve Says Devon Conway On Beating India In India
New Zealand batter Devon Conway said that defeating India in Test matches in their own backyard will be a massive goal his team would like to achieve. He added that defeating India in India will be a bigger challenge than defeating them in England during the inaugural World Test Championship final in June this year.
"Definitely. That's a massive goal that we'd like to achieve. To beat India in their home conditions is probably a bigger challenge than beating them in England. It would be a serious achievement, if not as big as the World Test Championship final. That will be a very important series to try and prove that," Conway was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz.
Asked about his assessment of succeeding in subcontinental conditions, Conway said, "Travelling to the subcontinent and being presented with surfaces that turn, that's where you've got to be really strong mentally within your defence, trust your defence, and you've got to have a method in which you can score. If you're not looking to score runs you won't be in good positions. You've got to nail down a plan and stick to it as much as possible, even though it's going to be challenging."
Before the two Tests against India in Kanpur and Mumbai, Conway will take part in the men's T20 World Cup in the UAE. Conway has recovered in time from a left middle finger fracture while batting for Southern Brave in The Hundred in August. The 30-year-old talked about how he could fit into the batting order.
