The South African-born Conway has also been granted an Exceptional Circumstance dispensation by the ICC which means, should he be selected for the NZ A tour of India (starting August 15) or the BLACKCAPS tour of Bangladesh (starting August 12), he will be allowed to play in tour matches ahead of the August 28 deadline.
NZC and Conway will provide the ICC with written confirmation that he’ll remain in New Zealand prior to August 28, or prior to the starting date of either tour – whichever is applicable.
The Wellington Firebird was named last season's Men’s Domestic Player of the Year and has fashioned impressive numbers across all three formats since first appearing for Wellington in the 2017-18 season.
