Evin Lewis did get company in Gayle and Samuels but they looked like standbys throughout the chase. None of the Indian bowlers troubled them. Kuldeep Yadav got a wicket but he went for plenty as well. The visitors will look to put this defeat to bed as they head to their next conquest in Sri Lanka. We have the presentation coming up for you shortly...
The tourists tried everything but it was Evin Lewis who had different plans altogether. Outscoring Gayle is difficult they say but this lad did that in some style. He got a couple of reprieves but except that it was just some sensational power hitting. Evin went on to score the highest score by any batsmen in a T20I during a chase which just speaks volume of his innings.
West Indies have totally decimated the hosts and hunted the 191-run target in some style. After opting to bowl first, they were highly confident of chasing the target down and just proved that. India batted well and posted a competitive total on the board thanks to some fantastic batting by their openers and Karthik. But when they stepped out to bowl, things changed completely.
