Defending champion Mark Selby edged past Kyren Wilson to set up a China Open final clash with Barry Hawkins.

Selby overcame Wilson 10-8 to keep alive his hopes of landing a second ranking title of the season.
On Sunday, Selby and Hawkins will play for the biggest prize outside of the World Championship, a £225,000 winners' cheque.

Selby surged into a 5-1 lead against Wilson with a top break of 96 before his opponent staged a rally to reduce the deficit to 6-5.

The 34-year-old Selby extended his advantage to 8-5 before another surge from Wilson levelled the match at eight frames each, but breaks of 66 and 58 from the world number one secured victory.

Selby told "Kyren just wouldn't lie down, even when I went 8-5 up. He potted some great long balls and really put me under it. Tomorrow is going to be a long day and another tough game against

Barry. I'll go out there and try my best and see if that's good enough."
Hawkins reached the final with a 10-6 win over Neil Robertson.
