Evin Lewis smashed 68 from 41 balls as the West Indies comfortably beat Afghanistan by 30 runs in the first T20 international of their three-match series.

Lewis cracked four fours and six sixes at the top of the order as the West Indies posted 164-5 from their 20 overs, with captain Kieron Pollard also contributing an unbeaten 32 off 22 in a late cameo.

Afghanistan limped out of the gates in reply, losing two wickets for seven runs in the opening three overs; Hazratullah Zazai (23), Asghar Afghan (25) and Najibullah Zadran (27) all threatened only to depart at crucial moments.
