Middle-order: Devon Conway, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, and Tom Blundell
Devon Conway returned to the Test team in the last Test match and scored an outstanding hundred in the very first innings. He played sumptuous shots both on the front foot and on the back foot. The southpaw scored 122 runs off 227 balls.
In his second outing in the Test, however, he scored 13 runs off 40 deliveries. Ross Taylor made 31 and 40 in the last Test. He would be disappointed to not have converted the starts into big scores. In what will be his last Test match at Hagley Oval, he would look to end his Test Cricket career on a high.
Tom Blundell would be disappointed with his performances with the bat but should look to continue donning the gloves. Henry Nicholls, however, looked solid at the crease, especially in the first innings. He made 75 runs off 127 balls and the management would be wanting him to replicate a similar performance in the next Test match.
