Host West Indies won a high scoring encounter against India by 9 wickets. Evin Lewis made short work of the 190 target set by the Indian team. It was boundaries galore at Kingston, where the visitors found the defending world T20 champions too hard to beat.
With all eyes on Chris Gayle coming back for the game, Evin Lewis was forgotten. But not for long though, he stamped his authority on the game with 6 powerful boundaries and 12 commanding sixes. He let no bowler settle, consistently putting them away for boundaries. Amongst them he took a particular liking to Mohammed Shami, who ended up conceding 46 in 3 overs. Lewis rightfully earned the Man of the Match award with an entertaining 125 not out in 62 balls.
In a game dominated by batsmen, Jerome Taylor managed decent figures of 2 for 31 in his allotted four overs. He picked up the wickets of MS Dhoni followed by Rishabh Pant in two consecutive deliveries.
