Speaking at an online press conference, Conway said: ‘It has been very profitable for us. We had a chance to play with the Duke balls and understand it. This helped shape our strategy. But it doesn’t change much (change the ball). We all know that Duke balls swing a little more than the Kookaburra but you have to face the ball and come to the crease with technique.
