Devon Conway became the fastest Kiwi batsman to reach 1,000 Test runs on Tuesday. Conway hit this milestone during New Zealand’s first Test against Pakistan.
Conway was unbeaten at 82 off 156 balls at the end of the first day. In his knock, he hit 12 elegant boundaries. Now he has 1,000 runs in 11 Tests across 19 innings at an average of 55.55. That’s three centuries and five half-centuries. The highest score he’s ever had is 200.
With 1,000 runs in 20 innings, he’s overtaken John Reid, a former Kiwi player.
In the longer format, Herbert Sutcliffe is the fastest to make a thousand runs. Back in 1925, he did it in just 12 innings.
At the end of the second day of the Karachi Test, New Zealand were 165/0, with Conway (82*) and Tom Latham (78*) unbeaten.
After electing to bat first, Pakistan were bundled out for 438 runs.
With the bat, Babar Azam (161), Agha Salman (103) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (86) shined for the Asian side.
Tim Southee (3/69) was the Kiwis’ most effective bowler. In addition to Neil Wagner, Ajaz Patel, Ish Sodhi, and Michael Bracewell took two scalps each.
Pakistan: 438 (Babar Azam 161, Agha Salman 103, Tim Southee 3/69), New Zealand: 165/0 in 47 overs (Devon Conway 82*, Tom Latham 78*) at the end of day two
