Brilliant Jamie Lewis knocks second seed Peter Wright out of the World Championship

What a match.

Welshman Jamie Lewis played the game of his life on Wednesday night to knock second seed Peter Wright out of the World Darts Championship.

Lewis delighted the crowd at Alexandra Palace, landing no fewer than 13 maximums and converting three 100+ finishes to overcome Wright.

Lewis will meet James Richardson in the third round and the 26-year-old was understandably delighted after his triumph over the 2014 runner-up.

"I was hoping to give him a good game but I didn't think I would beat him."

"I still can't believe it. Over the last few weeks I started to believe in myself more and it is working. I'm so chuffed to play like that on the big stage."

Elsewhere, top seed Michael van Gerwen and former champion Raymond van Barneveld won their matches to set up a mouthwatering quarter-final meeting.Β Van Gerwen overcame Gerwyn Price 4-2 while van Barneveld outclassed Vincent van der Voort 4-1.
