Early signs

Conway struck 53 runs in three matches of the Africa T20 Cup for Gauteng. Conway was registered by Wellington for 2018 in New Zealand during the second phase of the Plunket Shield season. Conway hogged the searchlight of the media and cricket fraternity in New Zealand by scoring a superb double-century against Otago at Basin Reserve. Then he did not have to look back. The batsman was the top scorer in the Super Smash tournament with 363 runs from nine matches.
