Star performer for West Indies, Lewis gave couple of chances to Indian team but India could not capitalize on them.

“If mis-hits go for sixes then you know it is his day but he gave us two chances, we couldn’t hold on to them. Those were costly opportunities and in T20 games every opportunity would cost you a lot. We could see the result went their way mostly because of dropped chances,” Karthik said at the post- match press conference.
