Conway has been selected for New Zealand’s tour of England, which starts with a two-test series against Joe Root’s side followed by the inaugural Test Championship final against India in Southampton from June 18.
The 29-year-old lefthander, who will bid to make his test debut on the tour, hopes playing the ball off kitty litter might help prepare for the variation of spin-off bowlers’ foot-marks.
“Basically the idea is to get the ball to sort of spit out of the rough,” Conway told New Zealand broadcaster Spark Sport after throwing some kitty litter on a pitch.
“It’s a bit harder to play, but good practice … It’s about finding a game plan to combat that and just practice how you’re going to play in the game.
“When it does roughen up and the ball does spit and turn a lot, it’s all about being positive.”
New Zealand play the first test against England in London on June 2.
