Michael van Gerwen beats Raymond van Barneveld to reach semis

Michael van Gerwen beats Raymond van Barneveld to reach semis

Elsewhere, Rob Cross has also claimed a spot in the semi-finals after edging out Dimitri Van den Bergh 5-4.

Quarter-final action continues this evening from 7pm as Phil Taylor takes on Gary Anderson, while Michael van Gerwan faces Raymond van Barneveld.

The Scot rallied and threatened to take the match into a decider at 2-2 in the eighth set, only for Taylor to hold his nerve to find double 10. "I still can't believe it to be honest", Lewis told Sky Sports Darts after the match.

"But I just knew I had to keep putting him under pressure".

He reaches the third round for the first time in his career - a feat Wright has enjoyed many times, although not this year.

"It's the greatest feeling in the world and I'm going to miss it after next week but I've been around for 30 years now".

Van Gerwen is the biggest threat to Taylor's hopes of ending his glittering career on a high and the 2016 victor displayed his champion qualities to secure a nervy win over Van Barneveld.

But Van Gerwen dug deep to avoid a repeat of his 2016 defeat at the hands of Van Barneveld.

He said: "I did not play like I did against Peter but I am just so happy to get through".

Lewis' torment continued as a fired-up Taylor nailed double 16 in yet another deciding leg to stand on the brink of his 21st World Championship final and duly came from two legs down to finish off the job.

"I'm really glad I was the victor".

"I expected to give him a good game, I didn't really expect to beat him".

"I'm just trying to relax as much as I can and try and keep focus". He normally shakes his head when he's behind but he didn't do that.

The 57-year-old retires after this tournament, but showed his class last night with a 5-3 quarter final win over Gary Anderson.

The Welshman was briefly delayed in his charge as Webster pulled back to 2-2 in the set before both missed set-winning doubles, however Lewis became the first man through to the semi-finals with a double six.
