Evin Lewis unaware of sixes world record, says his mother

West Indies opening batsman Evin Lewis was unaware about the T20 world record for sixes in a match according to his mother Dawn.

The 25-year-old left-handed batsman blasted India’s bowlers for 125 runs with 12 sixes and 6 fours at Sabina Park on Sunday.

The record for maximums in a T20 game is held by Australia’s Aaron Finch who hit 14 sixes against England in Southampton in August 2013.

“My son could have tried to hit three more sixes to top the record but he was unaware,” Dawn Lewis said. “He is capable of doing so, but anyhow, it was more about winning the match and we won against the stronger Indian team.”

Lewis is also in the company of Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum who all have registered more than one century in the T20 games.

“McCullum is no more playing, my son has a good chance to create history in the T20 matches,” his mother continued. “Evin is young and has lot of cricket to play. Gayle too has this chance. It also depends on who plays more T20 matches now.

“I guess T20 format is my son’s favorite. This is because limited over games are becoming more popular. The latest victory against India means a lot to him seeing the West Indies team back on the winning circle and lifting a trophy once again.”
