Van Gerwen regains World Series of Darts Finals crown on home soil as he eases past Noppert

Michael van Gerwen has shown once again why he is the World Number One dispatching Danny Noppert with ease to claim the World Series of Darts Finals crown.

Van Gerwen has now regained his title after James Wade won it last year and it is a fourth triumph in the tournament for Mighty Mike made even sweeter by the fact it is in front of his home crowd.

Noppert just wasn't at the races and seemed to succumb under the pressure being given chances; but not being able to take them hitting 2/13 on his doubles.

He had a fine start to proceedings kicking off with an 12 darter; but it didn't get much better from there. An 11 darter from Van Gerwen saw him take an early break 2-1 and the missed doubles began to creep in allowing MVG a 3-1 lead.

At the break, it was four consecutive legs as he stamped his authority firmly on the final not giving Noppie a trace. The procession continued and when Noppert missed darts in requisite legs, including for a 160 checkout; it allowed Van Gerwen into a 7-1 lead.

At the break it was 9-1 with Noppert missing 11 darts at double; MVG was only two legs away from reclaiming his crown.

Van Gerwen busted his score twice when in the madhouse and this allowed Noppert finally to stop the rot with a 48 checkout.

MVG kicked off again though with a 180 to gain control again of his leg on throw. He held his throw on double two to go one away.

Noppert was well back on his own throw and this meant that Van Gerwen stole the throw and stormed to the victory.
