Knight will be in charge of the team for both legs of the tour.
“I’m definitely looking forward to getting to the West Indies and working with this group,” Lewis added.
“Although I was not engaged in the selection process for this trip, we did have some short chats in the run-up to selection, and I congratulate everyone who was chosen and Cricket England’s Captain.”
