FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Opener Evin Lewis spoke to the Media (audio & video) and team captain Carlos Brathwaite to WICB Media (audio only) in separate media opportunities, after Dwayne Bravo engineered a sensational, last-ball victory for World champions West Indies over India in the first Paytm Twenty20 International today in this American city.

Bravo had Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni caught at backward point from the final ball of the match at Central Broward Regional Park to earn the Windies a nail-biting, one-run victory, after they set the "home team" 246 for victory.

Lewis, playing in only his second T20I, struck nine sixes and five fours in an maiden, even hundred that earned him the Player-of-the-Match award, and topped an unbeaten, maiden hundred of 110 for K.L. Rahul to help to pave the way for victory for the "visitors".

Summarised scores:

WEST INDIES 245 for six off 20 overs (Evin Lewis 100, Johnson Charles 79, Andre Russell 22, Kieron Pollard 22; Ravindra Jadeja 2-39, Jasprit Bumrah 2-47)

INDIA 244 for four off 20 overs (K.L. Rahul 110 not out, Rohit Sharma 62, Mahendra Singh Dhoni 43; Dwayne Bravo 2-37)
