Michael van Gerwen has reached the final of the PDC world darts championships for the sixth time, after beating Belgium’s Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-0 in their semi-final clash on Monday evening.

Despite his long track record, it is the first time Van Gerwen has made the final in four years. ‘And I want more. I don’t want to leave it as this,’ he told reporters after the match.

Van Gerwen will meet England’s Michael Smith in the final on Tuesday night. The two  met in the final in 2019, which the Dutchman won 7-3. He also took the PDC title in 2014 and 2017.

The winner on Tuesday night at Alexandra Palace in London will replace Gerwyn Price as the No 1 player in the world rankings, the Guardian reported.
