Devon Conway extended his hot streak in the Indian Premier League 2022, scoring his third half-century in a row for Chennai Super Kings . Conway scored 50 runs off the 27th ball he faced against the Delhi Capitals in his fourth game for the Yellow Army.
With a half-century in the current match, he became the third CSK batter to reach three consecutive half-centuries. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the first batter for CSK to reach this milestone, scoring back-to-back half-centuries in the final three league stage games of IPL 2020. In IPL 2021, Faf du Plessis, who now manages Royal Challengers Bangalore, joins Ruturaj in the elite list.
Conway travelled to South Africa for his wedding in the third week of April and returned to India last week. He was given a chance in the preceding Sunday's league stage match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (May 1). Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad embarked up a 182-run stand to push the score to 202/2. CSK triumphed by 13 runs in that game.
In the following match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the opener once again provided a great start, scoring 54 runs for the first wicket. Conway continued to bat, hitting 56 off 37 balls. CSK was defeated by 13 runs in that match. If Conway scores another half-century in the next game, he will become only the second batsman in CSK history to record four consecutive half-centuries. CSK's current match versus DC is a must-win. If they lose the game, their prospects of making the playoffs are officially over.
