New Zealand will play a three-match ODI series and a three-match T20I series against India in the upcoming weeks. India and New Zealand have been playing bilateral cricket quite frequently against each other of late. Many fans would remember that the Men in Blue visited New Zealand for three ODIs and three T20Is just two months ago in November 2022.

Devon Conway was born in Johannesburg. He tried hard to play international cricket for the South African cricket team, but he never earned a call-up to the national squad. Conway made a big decision to move to New Zealand, and the Blackcaps gave him a chance to play international cricket.

Conway has been a match-winner for the Blackcaps thus far. He has scored two ODI hundreds so far in 15 matches. It will be exciting to see how he performs against India.
