West Indies hard hitting batsman Evin Lewis scored a blistering hundred which helped the Windies register a crushing nine wicket over Indian in the one-off T20 at Kingston, Jamaica on Sunday. It was Lewis' second ton in T20 internationals, both of which have come against the Indians. Lewis had earlier scored a century against India in a T20 international in the US in 2016.

Lewis' scintillating knock was studded with 12 towering sixes and four boundaries. Evin joined his countryman Chris Gayle and New Zealand's dangerous strokemaker Brendon McCullum to become only the third cricketer to score two hundred's in T20 internationals.

Lewis' 125 was the highest individual score registered by a batsman in T20Is chase. Lewis went past the 122 scored by Hong Kong's Babar Hayat against Oman in the 2016 Asia Cup. This was also the highest score by any batsmen against India in T20Is going past Shane Watson's 124 in Sydney in 2016.
