  1. Thanks for joining us

    Well it's been a tremendous day of darts and I've enjoyed every second of it.

    Me and Gary Smee will be back tomorrow to do it all again. Coverage starts on BBC Two at 13:00 BST and we'll be providing live text coverage on the BBC Sport website.

    See you then, thank you for joining us.

    Michael van Gerwen 10-4 Adrian Lewis

    Adrian Lewis told BBC Sport:

    "Obviously I'm a lot better than that. To get the 170 checkout, I thought I'd kick on from there but I didn't and I got punished.

    "I was upset with myself but I haven't played in four and a half months. It was down to a lack of sharpness.

    "Bringing your pracitce game onto the board even when you're 100% is always difficult. It's been tough and I'm disappiointed.

    "MVG did his job, he was a lot sharper than I was and he deserved it."


    Michael van Gerwen 10-4 Adrian Lewis

    And he's done it, with a sub-100 average as well.

    Michael van Gerwen might not have been at his best against Barney earlier today, but he's made easy work of Adrian Lewis.

    Unfortunately for Jackpot, there's no way he can get to the semi-finals, but he performed well after coming back from injury and that 170 checkout was something else.

    *Michael van Gerwen 9-4 Adrian Lewis

    Twenty. One. Dart. Leg.

    MVG gets double five in the end after two missed attempts. He's just one leg away.

  5. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 8-4 Adrian Lewis*

    MVG attempts an 86 checkout and misses on the bull.

    BBC Sport commentator Dan Dawson almost deafens the audience by screaming BULL at the top of his lungs (thanks Dan) but alas, it's just 25.

    Fortunately enough for van Gerwen, Lewis misses another 170 checkout attempt and he throws double eight to come within two legs of victory.

  6. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 7-4 Adrian Lewis

    Adrian Lewis hits his second 180 of the match and seals victory in the leg after taking out 80.


    Lewis 180
  7. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 7-3 Adrian Lewis*

    The players are back out and Adrian Lewis needs something special here. Despite a four-month absense through injury earlier this year, Jackpot fared relatively well against Phil Taylor, winning seven legs.

    But he's going to need something truly special if he wants to beat MVG tonight. He's shown what's in his locker with that stunning 170 checkout so maybe we're in for an exciting second half!

  8. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 7-3 Adrian Lewis*

    This is a must-win game for both players and MVG is on it like a car bonnet.

    He takes out 82 on his way in at the break and he's three legs from victory. Not just that but he's currently averaging 103.17 in comparison to Adrian Lewis' 87.71.

  9. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 6-3 Adrian Lewis

    Michael van Gerwen

    A failed 149 checkout from Lewis leaves MVG to throw double tops with one dart to break is throw.

    The world champion takes a three-leg lead and we're one leg away from the break.

    Could this be the tipping point?

  10. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 5-3 Adrian Lewis*

    Well well well, that's one hell of a checkout.

    MVG hits 20, treble 18 and double tops to wrap up a terrific 114 checkout. He's back two legs ahead but how long will that last?

  11. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 4-3 Adrian Lewis

    Lewis bags a 94 checkout and despite missing double tops at the first attempt, he leaves a fantastic marker and guides it in with his next dart.

    Some lovely darts being played here. Both players holding throw rather well, as things stand.

  12. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 4-2 Adrian Lewis*

    MVG makes no mistake and holds his throw with a lovely double 16 to move two sets clear of Jackpot once more.

    Make no mistake, neither player is messing around here. The arrows are flying in tonight!

  13. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 3-2 Adrian Lewis

    Don't write off Adrian Lewis just yet. He dispatches a 58 checkout, finishing on double tops to narrow MVG's lead to just one leg.

    The crowd barely react. They're too busy having a jolly good sing song. Fabulous.

  14. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen 3-1 Adrian Lewis*

    Fast stuff, this. A second maximum of the evening from MVG is matched by a 180 of his own by Jackpot.

    But van Gerwen throws double eight and takes a swift 3-1 lead.

  15. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 2-1 Adrian Lewis

    MVG's body language looks completely different from his earlier 10-5 defeat by Raymond van Barneveld. He looks up for it.

    He throws a superb double 18 after landing his first 180 to wrap up the third leg of the match.

    MvG 180
  16. Lewis hits a 170 checkout

    Michael van Gerwen 1-1 Adrian Lewis*

    The atmosphere inside the Motorpoint Arena really is something else. The Cardiff crowd are in fine voice.

    And what a finish they've been treated to as Jackpot Adrian Lewis throws a tremendous 170 checkout, finishing on the bullseye.


  17. Post update

    *Michael van Gerwen 1-0 Adrian Lewis

    MVG throws 127 to leave double tops and he gets it at the second attempt to break Adrian Lewis' throw in the very first leg.

    Game on!

    Howard Evans: I am fancying Adrian Lewis for this one...putting my head on the block I know...

    Kevin Shepherd: WOW that was a close one but well done Phil, as always it's going to be so difficult against a player of Raymond's quality.

  19. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen v Adrian Lewis

    Adrian Lewis will throw first.

    I am psyched.

  20. Post update

    Michael van Gerwen v Adrian Lewis

    Thank you Gary.

    Get ready for some sterling darts action. Two great players who need a win. I think this could be a game to remember.

    Strap yourselves in. Both players have walked out and play will be under way soon.
