'He is 'just' 4 days late' Ashwin's humourous  comment over Conway's 99 runs

New Zealand's Devon Conway played a sensational knock against Australia in the first T20I at the Hagley Oval. The team was reduced to 19/3 before Conway unleashed the beast within himself to hammer an unbeaten 99 off 59 balls and guided the hosts to 184/5. Seasoned India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin once again showed his humorous side on Monday after Conway played a sensational knock.

Devon Conway went unsold in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction last week.  Ashwin was quick to point out the funny side after the batsman played a quality knock.Ashwin took to Twitter and wrote,  "Devon Conway is just 4 days late, but what a knock."

New Zealand suffered an early jolt as Daniel Sams removed opener Martin Guptill for a duck off the third ball of the match. If Guptill's poor form wasn't enough for the New Zealand players, the leading wicket-taker in the tenth season of BBL Jhye Richardson castled Tim Seifert in the third over to pile further misery on the Kiwis. Skipper Kane Williamson' also failed to play a big inning.  Conway then along with Glenn Phillips put the New Zealand innings back on track. The scored 74 runs for the fourth wicket before Marcus Stoinis came in front of New Zealand's recovery.
