Lewis thrashes India into submission

Opener Evin Lewis hammered an unbeaten 125 to lead the West Indies to a nine-wicket thrashing of India in the one-off T20 International at Sabina Park here on Sunday.

The 25-year-old clubbed 12 sixes in his remarkable innings, the highest score by a West Indies batsman in this format, to overshadow Chris Gayle’s first international appearance in 15 months.

Good start

Earlier, India failed to capitalise on a flying start, but still managed to post a challenging 190 for six.

Skipper Virat Kohli (39, 22b) and Shikhar Dhawan (23, 12b) led the charge after they were put in by Carlos Brathwaite. The pair put on 64, before both fell in the sixth over.

Kohli miscued a lofted stroke to Sunil Narine at mid-on while Kesrick Williams effected a run out off his own bowling, throwing down the stumps at the non-striker’s end to catch Dhawan short.

Dominant partner

In just his second T20I, Rishabh Pant struggled to get going but it was the experienced Dinesh Karthik who dominated an 86-run third-wicket stand before he fell for 48, bowled by Marlon Samuels.

His top-score occupied just 29 deliveries and included three sixes and five fours.
