Young Trinidadian Evin Lewis has been a revelation on the T20 circuit since his 2013 Champions League T20 exploits for Trinidad and Tobago team, where he scored 211 runs in five innings.

However, he came into the prominent spotlight in just his second T20I game for the West Indies, against India at Fort Lauderhill. West Indies batted first and Evin Lewis took on the Indian bowlers from the word go. Lewis slammed his century, his first in T20Is in just 49 balls with 5 fours and 9 sixes.

A year later, he repeated his performance against India, scoring 125* at Sabina Park in a T20I and joined an elite list of batsmen with multiple T20I centuries and first to score two T20I centuries against the same opposition.

Lewis is brilliant both off the front foot and off the back foot and confident against the spinners. His T20I career strike rate of 160.36 is evident that he believes taking the attack to the opposition and succeeds more often than not.
