Last year, Evin Lewis was the one who went away with the limelight when Chris Gayle missed the T20 game against India. But on Sunday, he was expected to be in the side role keeping in mind his poor form in the ODI series but his fortunes turned as soon as the number of overs in a game changed.

The left-handed batsman – who went unsold in the IPL auction earlier this year – showed that he is a player of high class in Twenty20 cricket. Lewis with his century innings became just the third batsman in the history of T20I cricket to score two centuries in this format of the game after Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum.

He alone drove his team to a win, in a chase to the huge target of 191, even when the run-rate slowed down after Gayle’s dismissal. But he didn’t spend much time in that zone and got in the groove soon.

Lewis smacked a total of runs 125* from his bat, which amounts to more than 60 percent of total what Windies actually needed. His innings was well decorated with 12 sixes and six fours. He hit more sixes that fours in this innings, which is similar to his career stats, as Lewis has more sixes than fours in his overall T20I career as well.

Windies rode on extremely talented innings from Lewis to seal a win – to have the last hurrah on the short tour of India to Windies – just like they had last year.

Lewis was happy to continue his form against a team likeIndia. Here is what he said after the game –

It was a good game. I am enjoying playing a team like India. It was a lot on my mind after five failures and I remembered that when I scored today. It is easier for me while batting with Chris, he takes a lot of pressure off me. I am not sure what this game would do to me but I am very happy with my performance today and look to continue it further.
