Lewis backs Sherrock for Premier League: 'She’s been a breath of fresh air to anybody'

Adrian Lewis saw off Kim Huybrechts in a culmination of hard work according to ‘Jackpot’ winning 6-3 at the Players Championship Finals.

Lewis said afterwards the luck has not been on his side and that he has been losing while producing brilliance.

“Definitely like I said I’ve been putting the work in over the last couple of years, it wasn’t just for this event. It’s been building up and building up, I’ve been averaging really well on the floor tournaments but just not getting the luck. I’ve been averaging 100+ and losing,” said Lewis post match.

“I’ve always been thrown in at the deep end and obviously if you’re associated with Phil Taylor, you’re always going to be thrown in at the deep end. I’ve lived off that.”

But for Lewis who has gone through a ranking slide, he admitted that he isn’t happy with how it was dealt with during the pandemic.

“I think a lot of it is not down to my fault. I think if you look back at the World Grand Prix last year when I tested positive for Covid, every other sport in the world has stopped with the rankings while ours seemed to carry on. I’ve now gone from number 14, I’m now 30, 35. We haven’t had the tournaments, I think it’s really wrong.”

The two-time world champion also joined the discussion whether Fallon Sherrock should get a wildcard for the Premier League Darts in 2022.

“The only good thing I can see (in the Corona pandemic) is Fallon Sherrock coming through, she’s been a breath of fresh air to anybody. I thought she’s been awesome.”

''Before the Peter Wright game (in the quarter-finals) I'd have questioned it, because it was a short format she has always played in. After the duration what she performed in that tournament, I would (give her a spot).''
