Devon Conway's unbeaten 92 off 52 balls helped New Zealand post a mammoth total of 210 runs in the first T20I against Bangladesh. En route to his 92, Conway played an outrageous reverse scoop off the bowling of left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman.

With the third man fielder inside the ring, Conway's inventive shot almost brought him six runs.

New Zealand are on course to register a comfortable win in the first T20I, with Bangladesh tottering 140-8 at the time of writing.

Devon Conway had to come in early at no.3 as debutant Finn Allen was dismissed for a golden duck in the first over. The wicketkeeper-batsman then formed a decent partnership with Martin Guptill to guide New Zealand past the score of 50.

Following the fall of Guptill's wicket, Conway and Will Young put on a 105 run-stand in 60 balls to put the hosts in a commanding position.
