One of the great T20 knocks ever

July 10, 2017 15:45 IST

Rajneesh Gupta is amazed at Evin Lewis' whirlwind knock.

Evin Lewis made a mockery of India's rather respectable total in the one-off Twenty20 International.

Lewis blasted an unbeaten 125 off just 62 balls giving the West Indies their highest successful chase at home.

The major records Lewis established/broke during his innings are as under:

  • The highest T20I innings ever played by any batsman against India.
  • The highest T20I innings for the West Indies and the third highest of all time.
  • The highest T20I innings ever in a chase in Twenty20 Internationals.
  • Lewis became the third batsman to score TWO hundreds in Twenty20 Internationals and the first to do so against a particular opponent.
  • The 12 sixes he hit are the third most by any batsman in a Twenty20 International innings.
  • Lewis scored 96 of his runs in boundaries -- 6 fours and 12 sixes -- the joint fourth-most in an innings in Twenty20 Internationals.
