Sports news | Beating India in India will be more of a challenge than winning the WTC finals: Conway

Chirstchurch, Oct 3 (PTI) New Zealand batsman Devon Conway believes beating India at home will be more of a challenge than beating them in the World Test Championship final.

New Zealand will travel to India in November to play three Twenty20 Internationals and two test matches after the T20 World Cup.

Coming back to work after a finger fracture, Conway said winning the tests in India remains a “massive goal” for the team.

“Definitely. It’s a huge goal that we’d love to achieve. Beating India at home is probably more of a challenge than beating it in England. It would be a serious achievement if not as big as the Test final. World Championship.” “Conway told stuff.co.nz.

“This is going to be a very important series to prove it.”

The 30-year-old said his batsmen need to be “mentally strong” to handle the subcontinent’s spin-friendly conditions during the tour.

“When you’re traveling to the subcontinent and faced with surfaces that are spinning, you have to be very mentally strong in your defense, trust your defenses, and have a method to score with,” said Conway.

“If you don’t want to get any runs, you are not in good positions. You need to pin down a plan and stick to it as much as you can, even if it will be a challenge.”

Before the India tour, New Zealand will try to win the T20 World Championship in the United Arab Emirates.

Commenting on the order of the shots, Conway said, “We have Martin Guptill in the lead and Tim Seifert who did really well, and you have the champion, Kane Williamson, at three.

“If I could get in at four it would be really good for the team, try to manipulate those middle stages against the spin and run hard between the wickets.”
