In light of that, Devon Conway built 138 runs partnership for the second wicket with opener Will Young who scored 52.
In a virtual press conference, the 30-year-old said, “It is a very special feeling. I think today, firstly playing in New Zealand in a Test match, it was very special to be out there. And then personally, it was a great feeling to have Ross Taylor there out in the middle with me when I achieved that milestone. He was very positive. Told me to soak it in, and congratulated me. It will last in my memory for a very long time”.
