-Lewis has now become the third highest scorer in T20I.

Set a challenging 191 to win on a good batting pitch, the West Indies cruised to their target at 194 for one off 18.3 overs.

- Lewis broke the record for the highest score in a chase in a T20I.

West Indies head coach Stuart Law was expecting a score of 240-250 from India after seeing a rapid start from their openers.

No doubt his mind would have been first and foremost on taking the West Indies past their opponents' challenging total of 190 for six. Nothing more to say about India's premier fast bowler.

India played a ODI and a T20 series agaist West Indies. They have to try and win every series and of course, the fans will be satisfied by nothing less, but the big cup remains their priority. Being T20 cricket, Kohli might finally give a chance to IPL star Rishabh Pant. It was very hard to bowl with the new ball, the spinners weren't getting much turn with the new ball and it was a very easy-paced pitch. He endured a blow on the shoulder too. He last played for the Carribean side in April 2016 against England. If the veteran left-hander misses out again, will India persist with Karthik? Virat Kohli - who was handling at long-on - dashed inside to get it.
