Devon Conway’s New Zealand residency confirmed to remove tour doubts


The batsman is expected to make his Test debut against England after prolific limited-overs performances

Devon Conway has had his New Zealand residency visa approved, which means he will be able to return to the country after the tour of England.

Although eligible to play for New Zealand since last August, his residency application was still pending until a few days ago. Only citizens or residents are able to return under the government’s Covid-19 protocols so it could have caused problems for Conway touring but the doubts have now been removed.

“Very positive news came through a couple of days ago that that has been granted so he is allowed to come back into the country,” New Zealand coach Gary Stead said. “We are really pleased for Devon and Kim, his partner, who have managed to get that over the line.

“I guess it’s one thing that’s been on his mind that’s not there anymore. Who knows, one less thing on his mind he might score more runs.”
