Conway completed his 50 off 30 balls against Punjab. He along with his opening partner Ritukaj Gaikwad once again gave the team a strong start. Both shared an 86-run partnership for the first wicket. Rituraj Gaikwad could only score 37 runs and got out. But Conway continued his game. He completed his 50 runs by hitting a four on the third ball of the 14th over.
This is his fifth half-century of this season. He has already hit Fifty in four consecutive matches. Conway could not do anything special in the first three matches. He was able to score only one run against Gujarat Titans. He missed a half-century by three runs against Lucknow Super Giants. He could not even open an account against Mumbai Indians. After that he scored half-centuries in four consecutive matches. He was able to score eight runs against Rajasthan but then played a brilliant inning against Punjab.

Devon Conway came in his place. This batsman has fulfilled the trust that the Chennai team showed on Conway and has been contributing brilliantly to the team’s success so far. However, he could not complete the century against Punjab and remained unbeaten after scoring 92 runs in 52 balls. He has hit one six and 16 fours in his innings.
