New Zealand player Devon Conway announced his arrival to international cricket in style, by scoring a double ton in his debut match. The blackcaps player had joined the elite list with his heroics at the Lord's Cricket Stadium, the mecca of cricket.

Success didn't come to Devon Conway easily. He had gone the extra mile. As he failed to create an impact in domestic cricket, he shifted to New Zealand from South Africa in 2017.

Before making his international debut, Conway had a dream domestic season. Since 2018-19, he has been a leading run-scorer in Plunkett Shield. Conway had scored 659 and 701 in 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons respectively.

For his steady performance, Conway had won the men's domestic player of the year in April 2020.

Conway joined the list of players like former English skipper Andrew Strauss, ex-Indian captain Sourav Ganguly to score a century at the Lords to score a century.
