Lewis joins elite company as Windies beat India in Twenty20

Kohli Shami lead India to a 3-1 series win

West Indies skipper Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and elected to field against India in the one-off Twenty 20 global at Sabina Park on Sunday. Gayle has remained a miraculous player for his side in this format with the highest runs 1,519 runs (average 35.32, strike rate 145.49), including two centuries.

West Indies won with nine balls to spare, making 194 for one off 18.3 overs in reply to India's 190-6 at Sabina Park in Kingston, Lewis clinching the victory in style by sweeping spinner Ravindra Jadeja over the boundary rope.

Series: This is the only T20I to be played between the two sides on this tour.

Only Australians Aaron Finch (156) and Glenn Maxwell (145 not out) have recorded higher scores.

While West Indies will depend seriously on their adventurous batter Chris Gayle who has joined the T20 team to deliver them a decent opening beside a good Indian bowling array.




"Five games in a row, in the ODIs, I didn't do well but I kept believing in my ability and today I came out trumps", Lewis said, referring to his slim pickings in the one-day global series that preceded the one-off T20.

IST: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl.

"We welcome Chris back to the T20 squad", he said. I gave an incentive that whoever gets a fifty gets half my match fee. "We wanted to put smiles on the faces of the fans".

Despite being outplayed 3-1 in the preceding one-day worldwide series, there is a sense of anticipation among home fans for this lone T20 duel as it marks the return to West Indies colours of local hero Chris Gayle, the big-hitting opening batsman whose last global appearance was in the World T20 final against England in Kolkata 15 months ago.

When will the India vs West Indies 2017, T20, India vs West Indies cricket game be played?

We aren't carrying any baggages (from the ODI series loss) and it is now about taking the positives and using them well.
