After an unforgettable first half of IPL 2022 where he warmed up the bench for most of the season after scoring in single digits in the only chance he had, Devon Conway has found his form in the second half with some hard-hitting shots in the last three games where he has managed to regularly break the 50-point mark.

The New Zealander once again got his bat talking after coming into this contest with scores of 85* and 56 as he chased Delhi’s new ball and bowlers to a change from the word ‘go’. CSK being asked to strike first. by DC skipper Rishabh Pant. It was indeed a good shot to lose for the defending champions, but especially for Devon Conway.

The Chennai setters meant business from the word ‘go’ and ensured they made Delhi bowlers work hard to get those much needed breakthroughs. As Conway went crazy, his opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad also played a great supporting shot as the duo added 110 runs for the first wicket before the latter was fired for 41 runs on 33 deliveries on the last ball of the 11th.

However, Devon Conway made sure he kept the Yellow Army scoreboard in the middle after scoring his third consecutive half-century. It’s worth noting that he received much-needed support from all-around hitter Shivam Dube who replaced former captain Ravindra Jadeja for this contest.

The duo were involved in a 59 run stand for the second wicket as Devon Conway neared his first IPL ton. Unfortunately for the Kiwi cricketer, he was woefully short by 13 runs after being caught by left arm point guard Khaleel Ahmed’s Rishabh Pant on third ball from the 17th.

The southpaw will have to wait another day to cross the triple digit mark, but he did some damage before returning to cover after playing a scintillating run of 87 carries from 49 deliveries at an exceptional strike rate of 177 .6 including seven. four and five sixes. However, his stroke and MS Dhoni’s finishing skills (21* out of 8) lifted CSK past the 200 point mark. They eventually managed to post 208 runs in their 20 overs.
