Watch: Jamie Lewis Whitewashes Webster On Way To World Darts Championship Semi-Finals

What a fairytale story this is becoming for Jamie Lewis.

Having shocked the darts world to beat Peter Wright 4-1 on Wednesday night, Lewis followed up that victory with a convincing 4-1 win over James Richardson.

That win set up a quarter-final against Darren Webster on Friday, and the Welsh wizard has once again blown away his opponent, winning 5-0 to advance to the last four in the world.

Having been a qualifier at the beginning of the tournament, Lewis’ rise has been all the more incredible.

The 26-year-old picked up where he left off on Friday night, winning the first set 3-1 whilst peppering the board with 180s before then racing into a two-set lead.

The Welshman averaged over 102 as he blew Webster apart following poor finishing from his opponent to take a third consecutive set and move a step closer to the semi-finals.

Victory then became all but a formality as Lewis somehow further upped his game to take a 4-0 lead, on a 103 average, hitting nine maximums and showing a real ruthlessness on the doubles.

The 180s kept on coming for Lewis in the fifth set, before he took out D8 to go within one leg of winning the match. Webster pegged his opponent back to 2-2, but a D6 finish saw Lewis whitewash his opponent – continuing his fairytale story at Alexandra Palace.

Lewis has been the form player of the championship, and his run is showing no signs of ending anytime soon.
