Twitter Reactions: Evin Lewis hits unbeaten 99 as West Indies crush Ireland in first ODI

Posted On / /

West Indies whipped Ireland by five wickets in first ODI of the three-match series at Kensington Oval, on Tuesday (January 7).

Chasing Ireland’s modest total of 180, the Windies ended on 184 for five in 33.2 overs, with opener Evin Lewis one short of his third ODI century on 99 not out off 99 balls.

The Trinidadian left-hander struck 13 fours and two sixes in his knock but needing to hit a six to get his century with the scores level, Lewis lofted the Irish fast bowler Barry McCarthy over extra cover only to drop to his knees as the ball landed agonizingly a few inches inside the boundary.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
