England regain Darts World Cup
14 Jun 2015 23:11
England's Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis claimed a third bwin World Cup of Darts title in four years with a thrilling victory over Scotland's Gary Anderson and Peter Wright in Frankfurt.
Earlier wins over Belgium and Holland respectively had set up the all-British finale.
Taylor kicked off the final with an amazing 113.43 average - an individual record for the World Cup of Darts - in a 4-0 whitewash of Wright, only to see Anderson see off Lewis 4-1. The Doubles clash then went the way of England as Taylor took out 101 to win the deciding leg for a 4-3 triumph - only to then see himself beaten by a sublime Singles display by Anderson, who averaged 108 and took out finishes of 150 and 110 in a 4-1 win. That sent the final to a decisive Singles tie between Lewis and Wright, and it was the two-time world champion who rose to the occasion. Lewis recorded checkouts of 87, 70 and 74 to take a 3-0 lead, and though Wright responded with an 11-darter, the Englishman took the next in 14 darts to give England the title
Northern Ireland’s Brendan Dolan and Mickey Mansell lost out in the quarter-final stages to the powerhouse Dutch duo of Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld, having beaten Thailand and New Zealand along the way.
The Republic of Ireland team of Willie O’Connor and Connie Finnan recorded a first-round win over Poland but were narrowly beaten in round two by Hong Kong in one of the games of the tournament.
