West Indies won with nine balls to spare, making 194 for one off 18.3 overs in reply to India's 190-6 at Sabina Park in Kingston, Lewis clinching the victory in style by sweeping spinner Ravindra Jadeja over the boundary rope.
West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and put India in to bat in their one-off T20 global at Sabina Park in Jamaica on Sunday.
Gayle's appearance at his home ground of Sabina Park will be his first Twenty20 worldwide appearance since last April's World T20 final victory over England, but the 37-year-old has revealed he has no plans to retire.

West Indies might have become easy-beats in test cricket, but they showed on Sunday they are a different in the shortest version of the sport, especially with the bat.
Meanwhile, speaking after the win, a jubilant West Indies skipper, Carlos Braithwaite said, "Very, very happy". I gave an incentive that whoever gets a fifty gets half my match fee.
Carlos Brathwaite: We will bowl first, since we know they (India) chase quite well. The crowds came out in big numbers and the smile on their faces does it for us. It is hard to switch (players in the side) for just one game. We aren't carrying any baggages (from the ODI series loss) and it is now about taking the positives and using them well.
The results of the match would also affect the ICC T20 team rankings and if India lose then West Indies will replace them at no. 4 but if win they will remain unchanged.
