In the first Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup 2022, the New Zealand batsmen badly washed away the Australian bowlers. Opener Devon Conway thrashed the bowlers with his bat. Opener Conway played an unbeaten innings with 92 runs. He turned Australia’s bowling attack off 58 balls. Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Marcus Stoinis faced the bowling. Conway scored 40 with just fours and sixes in a storming innings. He hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in an innings of 92 runs.
New Zealand scored 200 runs in 20 overs with Conway batting fast. If you look at the pace of Conway’s half-century in 36 balls, it seems that he will complete the century. But, New Zealand’s innings was over before the century was completed.
