Devon Conway IPL Stats: Everything You Need to Know

Devon Conway has been a real star for Chennai Super Kings in the recent years. He was the perfect opener that the CSK side sought when Faf du Plessis departed in the 2022 edition.

The ousting of Faf left a huge gaping hole in the top order of the Chennai Super Kings team. After all, the South African has been a part of the team since 2012, and was almost irreplaceable. Yet, Chennai couldn’t retain him when the mega auction occurred in 2021. Hence, they were looking for a new opening batter.

That is when Devon Conway came into the picture and fit the frame seamlessly. In this article we will look at how Conway has become one of the most important players of CSK. Along with that, let’s also take a look at Devon Conway stats in IPL for Chennai Super Kings, among other things.

Kiwi batter Devon Conway has been thoroughly impressive since his debut with the New Zealand Men’s Senior International Cricket Team. As an aggressive left-hand batsman, the New Zealand team often depends on his performance while batting first or chasing. 

Despite being aggressive at times, Devon still never forgets to fascinate fans with his classic shots. He can also don the wicketkeeper’s hat if the captain asks him. He is certainly a go-to man for his team and obviously the most prized asset.

Many fans are unaware that Devon Conway was not born in New Zealand, the country he represents in international matches. Devon was actually born on July 8th, 1991, in Johannesburg, South Africa. However, when he was just 26- years -old, Convay moved to New Zealand in 2017, and since then, he has been playing for the Kiwi national squad.

CSK captain MS Dhoni first discovered Devon Conway’s real batting potential as a T20 star.

Devon’s much-glamorized IPL debut came in the IPL 2022 session, and as they say, the rest is history in the making. CSK purchased Devon Conway for a whopping 1 crore INR, and every penny spent on the superstar was worth it.

At IPL 14, Devon played 7 matches for CSK, hammering 252 runs at an astonishing strike rate of 147. He also hit 22 boundaries and 12 sixes in the tournament, making him one of the most explosive T20 batters for the Dhoni-led CSK team.

In the next season, Devon again honed his batting prowess at the IPL 2023. He amassed 672 runs in 16 matches at an average of 52 and a strike rate of 140. Devon remained the third-highest run-scorer in the tournament, with just Shubhman Gill (890) and Faf du Plessis (730) ahead of him.

Devon Conway’s top score in the tournament was 92* (52b, 4sx16, 6sx1) against the Punjab Kings in the IPL 2023. However, Punjab beat CSK in that match in the last ball thriller while chasing Chennai’s 200-run target.

Devon Conway IPL Salary

CSK bought Devon Conway for INR 1.00 crore and has been constantly paying him the same amount since IPL 2022. Even though IPL 2024 hasn’t started, there will be huge expectations from Devon.

Devon Conway News

Fans and the CSK team are hopeful that Devon Conway will once again spearhead the men’s winning campaign at IPL 2024, starting this March. But here comes the breaking news! According to news sources, Devon Conway recently got badly injured while playing against Australia in a T20I.

The star batter suffers a left thumb injury while keeping wicket for his side. Immediately after the injury, he was seen rushing to team physio and leaving the ground. The news has just come in that the injury wasn’t so simple or normal. The southpaw will have to undergo several scans to determine the severity of the injury. As of now, he has been ruled out of the ongoing Australia-New Zealand T20I series.

Though CSK’s Mr. Consistent (Conway) has just 30 days in hand to fully recover before donning the yellow jersey, the suspense over his participation in the IPL 17 is still doubtful. We keep our fingers crossed and wish Convey the speediest recovery so that he joins CSK and keeps fascinating us with his scintillating shots.

6 games into the tournament, and Devon conway was finally ruled out for the season. He was always in doubt to begin with and the confirmation was almost eminent. Richard Gleeson was named as his replacement.
