Lewis, who played an innings of 176* in the fourth ODI, was stretched off the field in the 47th over of the game when he got hit by a delivery off Jake Ball. He recuperated the Windies’ innings and carried it till the death overs, but an injury to him meant it had an impact on team’s score.
Along with that, he also missed out on a personal milestone as there were chances of him becoming second Windies batsman, after Chris Gayle, to score a double century in an ODI game, but an injury kept Lewis out of the field.
