West Indies Highest Score in T20I

245/6 against India

In a dramatic one-run triumph over India in Lauderhill, Florida, Dwayne Bravo overcame the pressure with a magnificent show of death bowling that overpowered KL Rahul's heroics. After the West Indies scored their highest-ever T20 total of 245 for 6, India made 244 for 4.

Indian appeared to have the match under control with only 7 required in the final over after Rahul hammered an unbeaten 51-ball 110, but Bravo stopped Dhoni from completing the chase. Earlier, West Indies opener Evin Lewis scored his first T20I century in just his second outing, helping the team to 245/6, the third-highest T20 total in history.

236/6 against South Africa

It was the greatest successful run chase in the shortest format, powered by Chris Gayle's 90 off 41 balls and sustained by Marlon Samuels T20 half-century. South Africa made a huge total of 231 runs on the scoreboard. Faf du Plessis, who was leading the team, showed a heroic performance and struck 119 runs from 56 balls at the strike rate of 212.50. This helped the Africans to reach a total of 231 for 7. But the partnership of Gayle and Marlon Samuels created history for West Indies and they struck their 2nd highest total in the history of T20I.
