Stepping down the track and hitting spinners over the ropes is not his strong suit but CSK opener Devon Conway employed the shot with great success on captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's advice in the win against DC in the IPL. After enabling CSK to 91-run win with a 49-ball 87, laced with seven fours and five sixes, Conway revealed that Dhoni told him that the spinners will try and bowl fuller to him because you swept a lot in the last match and it would be a good idea to try and use your feet to hit the ball down the ground.

"I have got to give credit to MS actually," Conway said after the match. ''In the last game, I swept quite a lot, and I unfortunately got out playing the sweep. But he (Dhoni) told me 'I think the guys are going to try to bowl fuller to you tonight. So maybe come out and try to hit them straight.' "He sort of gave me the guideline to try to execute that," the southpaw said.
