Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel opener Evin Lewis has revealed that he has “West Indies aspirations” and is looking to capture the attention of the national selectors with his performance in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
Lewis has scored 192 runs, which includes two half-centuries, at an excellent average of 48 in the four matches he has played for Trinidad and Tobago.
“I definitely have West Indies aspirations. Always had,” Lewis said. “That never changed. Luckily for me, the last couple games, the bowlers have been putting it [the ball] in my scoring spots so that’s made it easier for me but I just want to keep going out there and keep doing my best. Yesterday we batted first and today we chased, so when we bat doesn’t matter because I just want to go out there and keep giving it my best. Not just for T20s but also hopefully, in Tests.”
Lewis has also received a lot of support from Trinidad and Tobago captain Dwayne Bravo.
“Evin came out and played a big knock,” Bravo said. “We know he can hit the ball and he’s shown that at the [Queen’s Park] Oval time and time again.”
