Bangla Hunt Desk: Sourav Ganguly set a new record by playing his first Test in India’s jersey in 1996, playing an unbeaten innings of 131 at Lord’s in England. History is made in Lords by a Bengali. That record was finally broken after 25 years of being intact. The record was broken by New Zealand batsman Devon Conway.
Sourav Ganguly was born on July 8, 1972. Significantly, Devon Conway was born on the same day, July 8, but he was born 19 years after Ganguly. Coincidentally, there are a lot of similarities between the right-handed medium pacer and the left-arm opener.
New Zealand opener Devon Conway was born in South Africa and had some difficulty playing for New Zealand. However, Devon Conway has been playing regularly for New Zealand since he got permission from the ICC in March last year. Although he started a little late, Devon Conway has started making an impression in international cricket.
