Opener Devon Conway made exactly 200 on Test debut as New Zealand scored 378 on Day Two of the series opener at Lord’s on Thursday.


At stumps, England were 111-2 with Rory Burns and Joe Root batting on 59 and 42 respectively.


Earlier, Conway was the last man out in a first-innings total of the two-match series. 


The South Africa-born left-hander was in sight of becoming the very first batsman in the 144-year history of Test cricket to carry their bat—bat throughout the entire innings—in their first knock in the format when he was run out to end a stay of more than nine-and-a-half hours. 

Nevertheless, it needed a review of a close call before it was confirmed that England captain Joe Root had taken the bails off in time.
