Conway achieved the feat on the opening day of the ongoing first Test against England. The left-handed batsman scored an unbeaten 136 as New Zealand marched to a strong position finished with a score of 246/3 at end of day one.
Ganguly had scored 131 on his Test debut at Lord’s in 1996 which was also the highest score by a player at the venue until Conway scored an unbeaten 136 on Wednesday. Interestingly, Conway and Ganguly also share a birthday of July 8.
With this ton, Conway became only the third non-English batsman to score a century on Test debut at Lord’s. Australian batsman Harry Graham had scored 107 against England on his Test debut in 1893.
