Adrian Lewis And Peter Wright Had Heated Clash At Players Championship Finals

Peter Wright defeated Adrian Lewis in the last-32 at the Ladbrokes Players Championship finals on Saturday. It was a 6-5 win for world darts number two Wright.

On stage following the match, there was a heated exchange between Lewis and Wright. Lewis was eventually led off the stage by a member of security.

World number 34 Lewis later tweeted about the exchange, calling Wright a "cheat" and saying that he had put him off his game during the match.

"Learning curve about trust today occurred," wrote Lewis.

"I honestly did nothing wrong, even I was bewildered with what was going on and trying to process it whilst trying to concentrate on my darts, so at the end of the game I wanted to find out what was his problem because I didn't have a clue what was going on.

"He said to me their was a loose floorboard and I found it! So my response to him was you took me out [of] my rhythm, you had a game plan, and as world number 2 its disgraceful and your (sic) nothing but a cheat. He knew what he was doing as soon as I went 3-1 up he started muttering things and shaking his head at me which put me in a situation that made me feel uncomfortable.

"The people who I fall out with always have to be the ones [who] apologise because they know I'm not a cheat never have been never will be!!"

"I'm not bothered about Adrian and the comments," Wright told Online Darts TV following his match against the Englishman.

"I just go and play my game and plod along."
