In IPL 2023, Devon Conway has established himself as a dependable top-order player for Chennai Super Kings. The player has formed a great understanding with Ruturai Gaikwad and has excelled in the leadership of MS Dhoni. Following the game against KKR, the Kiwi batsman highlighted the stardom of MS Dhoni and hailed the 41-year-old for creating a home team-like fixture for CSK wherever they travel.
“I think my partnership with Rutu calms the nerves. A lot of credit needs to go to Rutu. I’m just trying to be as clear as possible. I've always had an issue with the ball on the body, but have been getting over it. By using my feet [against spinners], I get into good positions and get momentum,” said Conway.
He expressed contentment with the team atmosphere and added that having Dhoni on the side makes them feel like every game in the IPL is a home fixture. Conway scored 56 runs off 40 balls, hitting four boundaries and three sixes.
“The culture we have here in Chennai is very special and for us it's about continuing this momentum. Certainly, having MS makes us feel like every game is like a home fixture,” Conway added.
