Barneveld and Taylor reach final
Raymond van Barneveld in action
Van Barneveld will play Taylor for the 100k prize on New Year's Day
Raymond van Barneveld and Phil Taylor set up a dream final in the PDC World Darts Championship as they both crushed their semi-final opponents 6-0.

Van Barneveld whitewashed Andy Jenkins in the first semi-final, but Taylor was not to be outdone and handed out the same treatment to Andy Hamilton.

Taylor is a 13-time world champion, while Van Barneveld has won the rival BDO World Championship four times.

"I think you're going to get a cracking final," said Taylor after his victory.

The players now have a day off before the final at 1930 GMT on New Year's Day.

Hamilton only won five legs against Taylor, with his only real chance of winning a set coming in the sixth set when the match was all but lost.

But he fluffed his chance with three shots at double 16 and Taylor closed out.

Van Barneveld was just as dominant, only allowing Jenkins in in the third set.

But Jenkins also failed to take the opportunity and the Dutchman never looked back.

After his victory Van Barneveld had said: "I'm on a mission here and I hope to play Phil in the final."

He has his wish and the performance of both players in the semi-finals suggests it could be a classic.
