Two top New Zealanders, Devon Conway, and Trent Boult, will be facing each other in a straight battle. Conway has been in great form with 4 consecutive half-centuries for CSL, but Boult is known for his ability to take wickets in the powerplay overs, especially in first over. This opening duel could set the tone for the game.
