Evin Lewis smashed his 2nd ton in a T-20 game and scored 125 as Windies won the only T20 against India with ease. Both his centuries have come against India as the last time he scored a century was in Florida.

Evin Lewis smashed the Indian bowlers all around the park and hit massive sixes as he made the chase look very easy. India had scored 190 which was a pretty good total till the time the Windies team did not come out to bat. Everybody thought Gayle will be the man who will take the Indian bowling apart but instead it was Lewis who kept smashing all the bowlers.

India was very sloppy in the field as they dropped 3 catches and twice it was Lewis who was dropped which left the Indian Captain Virat Kohli fuming with anger.

Jadeja and Ashwin were also not spared as both of them went for plenty.

India looked on the back foot as Lewis went after every bowler and it seemed as the bowlers were just trying to defend the runs rather than going in for wickets.

Earlier Kohli and Dhawan had given India a good start as Kohli scored 39 of 22 balls. Karthik also played a good hand as he scored 48 but even he did not bat through the innings which could have been one of the factors why India did not reach the 200 mark.

Rishabh Pant was also not able to score big as he was not able to strike the ball well and failed to make an impact.

It was just Windies day and this happens in cricket as India are a much better fielding side than what happened on Sunday.

But even then you can't take anything away from Lewis as he was brilliant with his performance.
