By John Lowe, May 20 2016 07:13AM
Michael Van Gerwen bacame the Betway Premier League champion for the second time at the O2 Arena in London last night, in his first match semi-final against Adrian Lewis he powered to a 10-4 win, averaging 103.19, he then had to wait while Taylor and Anderson battled it out to decide who would join him in the final, It was a close match but Anderson did not go in front once, he leveled at 4-4 and brought his chances back at 8-7, but that is where it ended, Taylor taking the next 2 legs and a place in the final was his.
The O2 crowd was buzzing with anticipation what was instore as Taylor and then MVG made their walk to the stage, could this be one of the best finals ever between the 2 jiants of the sport ? at 2 legs each it was looking to develop into a classic, then MVG put his foot down and roared away to take a 4 leg lead, Taylor pulled 1 back only to see MVG take out 100 in the next with 2 double top's, 7-3, this stopped Taylor's fight back dead in it's tracks, he didn't, couldn't stop MVG at his best, losing 11-3.
MVG was the only player to average over 100, which he did in both of his matches, on this performance and the way he has maintained his 100 plus average throughout the season, he is undoubtedly the best player in the world, the rest have a lot of catching up to do.
