Adrian Lewis has the ability to rub some darts fans up the wrong way, but there can be very few who can seriously question his credentials with dart in hand especially after watching his recent performance in the Betway Premier League at the Echo Arena in Liverpool against Raymond van Barneveld.
Not only did “Jackpot” hit his fifth televised nine darter ( poor Barney has been the opponent on three occasions! ) but his match average ( 111.52 ) and finishing stats were remarkable.
This one performance could kick-start the rest of his season and no-one will relish the prospect of meeting him in the play-offs if he makes it there. Once in his zone on the oche he makes the game look ridiculously easy – when we all know it certainly is not!
