Conway, Young both set for ODI debuts with Black Caps’ two best batsmen sidelined with injury.

New Zealand will be without their two best-performed batsmen for the one-day international cricket series opener against Bangladesh.
Ross Taylor was the latest to be ruled out of the first ODI in Dunedin on Saturday, due to a hamstring injury.
Regular skipper Kane Williamson was already sidelined for the series with an elbow injury, meaning Tom Latham will lead the side.
Ajaz Patel scored his maiden first-class half-century to put the Central Stags on top of the Wellington Firebirds.
Auckland batsman Mark Chapman was called into the 13-man squad on Wednesday as they assemble in Dunedin for game one.

The absence of Taylor and Williamson raises the prospect of Devon Conway and Will Young both making their ODI debuts, in the senior duos spots of No 3 and No 4, at University of Otago Oval.
In a statement, the Black Caps said Taylor suffered a small tear in his hamstring while fielding on the final day of the Central Stags Plunket Shield victory over the Wellington Firebirds in Napier on Sunday.

Ross Taylors absence could mean an ODI debut for Will Young on Saturday.
Black Caps coach Gary Stead said the injury was precautionary and was hopeful Taylor would be available for game two at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Tuesday.
Its a small tear and were hopeful after some rest and rehabilitation we can get him fit for the second game in Christchurch, he said.
Its an exciting time for Mark whos come in and performed well recently for the T20 side, so we have full confidence he can do the job if called upon.
Mark Chapman, right, is rejoining the Black Caps squad as injury cover for Ross Taylor.
Taylor will assemble with the side in Dunedin later on Wednesday in order to have treatment and monitor the injury.
The three ODIs against Bangladesh make up the Black Caps first qualifying series for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup.
