Lewis rewatches brilliant 2012 World Cup of Darts final win against Australia
Last week, in one of the Throwback Videos, a tie from the 2012 World Cup of Darts was looked back on and that was the final which saw England (Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis) take on Australia (Paul Nicholson and Simon Whitlock).
Known still to this day as one of the most dramatic finals to take place, it saw a sudden death leg full of misses until Lewis finally pinned the double.
'Jackpot' looked back on the match in a rewatch with the PDC this past week and he spoke about competing in the World Cup for the first time in this iteration and what an introduction it was.
"It was quite scary. You've obviously got Phil (Taylor) in the background giving you loads of abuse but I think that's why we worked so well, we were a great team in the end," said Lewis.
"You know what Paul (Nicholson) is like. Don't get me wrong he was a great player back then when he was playing and he was quite a slow player so you couldn't get into any rhythm. He was a great character."
On the sudden death leg which followed after it was made 3-3, Lewis spoke about the final few darts: "I thought that was it (when Nicholson had 56 to win). You're just thinking don't miss, that was the best dart I'd thrown. For playing in the World Cup for the first time and win it as well, it was good that was."
He also spoke about how the final ranks and his pairing with Taylor: "It's got to be up there in the top couple. I think with my scoring power, his finishing was normally spot on, you're going to give yourself chances and you always knew that in the back of your mind."
