During Match 14 of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League both Evin Lewis of the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Ali Khan of Trinbago Knight Riders were charged by the on-field umpires with breaching Article 2.2.4 of the Code of Conduct - Inappropriate & deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play.

The incident occurred following the third ball of the Super Over being bowled by Ali Khan.

Both players pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted the following sanctions imposed by Match Referee, Simon Taufel, which are in keeping with the sanctioning guidelines provided for such breaches, at Article 7.3 of the Code:

Evin Lewis - 100% of his match fee

Ali Khan - 75% of his match fee

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots produced the most astonishing Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory as they chased down Jamaica Tallawahs’ 241/4 on a night when sixes flew and records tumbled at Warner Park.

 

The Tallawahs appeared home and hosed at the halfway stage after Chris Gayle had returned to torment the side he had led for the previous two seasons. The Universe Boss smashed 116 from 62 balls with 10 sixes to register his 22nd T20 century, sharing a Hero CPL record partnership of 162 with Chadwick Walton – who kept pace with Gayle in his own 36-ball innings of 73 – to propel the Tallawahs to the highest total in the history of the tournament.

 

It was a record that would stand for only two hours as the Patriots reached 242/6 with seven balls to spare. The sixes just kept flying, the records just kept tumbling. Evin Lewis hit six Hero Maximums and three fours as he blitzed his way to 50 in just 17 balls – another Hero CPL record – and took the Patriots to 85/0 inside the Power Play before he was surprised by extra bounce and caught behind by Glenn Phillips off Andre Russell.

 

But he had shown the way, and his team-mates followed his lead.

 

Devon Thomas made his way to 50 off 30 balls and new arrival Laurie Evans from England gave an immediate display of his class as spin and seam alike disappeared to all parts of Warner Park.

Windies opener Evin Lewis has not played very much 50-over cricket ahead of his side’s first game at the ICC World Cup in England and Wales next week, but believes he is ready. 

The Windies ODI squad for the first two upcoming matches against England starting February 20, has been bolstered by the recall of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis.

Evin Lewis smashed an unbeaten century as the Comilla Victorians defeated the Khula Titans by 80 runs to move to the top of the Bangladesh Premier League on Monday.

Keemo Paul claimed the best Twenty20 international figures for a West Indies bowler to seal a series victory over Bangladesh after a devastating innings from Evin Lewis in Mirpur.

The Tigers won the Test and ODI series' against the Windies, but the tourists gained a measure of revenge on Saturday.

Lewis blasted 89 off only 36 balls - including eight sixes - as West Indies posted 190 all out in the decider, Shakib Al Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman and Mahmudullah taking three wickets apiece.

Paul then took centre stage with magnificent figures of 5-15 as Bangladesh were bowled out for 140, Liton Das top scoring with 43 after an early stroke of luck when he was caught in the deep but a no-ball was wrongly called for the second time in the over.

Lewis took no time to get his eye in, smashing Abu Hider for four sixes down the ground in a third over which cost 27 runs after Shakib won the toss and put West Indies in.

Shakib (3-37) ended an opening stand of 76 by cleaning up Shai Hope (23), but Lewis brought up his half-century from only 18 balls in a brutal onslaught.

The clean-striking Lewis looked set for a third T20 international hundred, but missed out when he was bowled by Mahmudullah in the 10th over attempting a slog-sweep.

West Indies - who handed a debut to Sherfane Rutherford - lost their way after the opener departed, Nicholas Pooran's 29 the only other notable contribution as the Tigers hit back well.

There was controversy early in Bangladesh's run chase when umpire Tanvir Ahmed twice called no-ball in an over from Oshane Thomas despite the paceman having part of his foot behind the line, the second giving Das a let-off after he was caught in the deep.

Both free hits were dispatched for six to add insult to injury, ensuring Thomas' over cost 30 runs, but Fabian Allen removed Soumya Sarkar in the next over and Shakib first ball to soften the blow after the Windies had protested with the umpires.

Bangladesh were 89-7 in the 10th when Paul removed Das and Ariful Haque in successive balls and Hider's quickfire 22 was in vain as the hosts fell well short.

Opening batsman Evin Lewis and fast-bowlers Sheldon Cottrell and Kesrick Williams have been named to a 15-man Windies squad for their upcoming T20 series against their hosts Bangladesh.

Five West Indians have been retained to their various teams for the Indian Premier League’s 2019 season. 

Windies opener Evin Lewis has withdrawn from the team for the ODI tour of India citing personal reasons.

Windies opening batsman Evin Lewis will not have a central contract with the regional cricket oversight body for the next 12 months. 

The Trinbago Knight Riders batted the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots out of their Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) game at Warner Park in Bassettere on Friday, winning by 46 runs. 

The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, coming off a disappointing loss to the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Hero Caribbean Premier League, will look to regain some confidence and momentum when they play against the St Lucia Stars at the Warner Park Sporting Complex in Basseterre tonight. 

Evin Lewis' best score since the start of the Hero Caribbean Premier League is 13. Should the talented West Indies opener be dropped from the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots?

Veteran Windies star Chris Gayle has given a vote of confidence to upcoming generation of regional cricketers who he believes will make the team a force to be reckoned with in coming years.
