Batsman Devon Conway, who was picked in the New Zealand T20I squad that plays later this month but ignored from the Test squad despite a stellar season in which he scored 410 first-class runs at 58.57, says he will wait for his opportunities and make the most of what he has got.

"Just getting an opportunity in the T20 squad is pretty special right now. We do not want to push things too soon. I have still got to earn the right to get that Test callup and if it maybe happens in the future we will see how it goes," the 29-year-old was quoted as saying by

The left-handed batsman, who made 157 in his last first-class game for Wellington against Auckland, was elated and said that the news hadn't sunk in as yet.

"It will probably take a couple of days for it to settle in. It is a great honour; [Larsen] cornered me during the game and sat me down and said 'congratulations, you have been selected in the T20 squad'," he said.


"I did not really know what to say. It took me a couple of seconds to digest it, and we are here today and it is pretty exciting."
