Cardigan's Jamie Lewis will face the biggest night of his professional darts career later when he takes on the legendary Phil 'the power' Taylor for a place in the PDC World Championship final.

Lewis, 26, stormed into the semi-finals yesterday with a 5-0 whitewash of Darren Webster at Alexandra Palace - following up his superb 4-1 win over second seed Peter Wright in their last 16 match.

By contrary, the Welshman is only ranked number 46 in the World and had to come through provisional rounds to qualify for the tournament - where he had never previously got past the second round.

But the man nicknamed 'rasta' now stands on the brink of history, just two wins from becoming the first man from Wales to become PDC World champion since the inaugural tournament in 1994.

After whitewashing Webster, hitting four maximum 180s and averaging more than 100 in the process, Lewis took to social media to thank all of his supporters.

"Unreal to reach the semi finals of the Worlds," he said.

"Chuffed with the way I played, let's keep it going now tomorrow. Thanks for all the messages, there have been too many to reply to but appreciate every one of them!"

However, to reach the final he will have to get past the best player in the history of the game, with Taylor aiming for a 17th, and final, World crown.

The 57-year-old retires after this tournament, but showed his class last night with a 4-3 quarter final win over Gary Anderson.

In the other semi final, top seed Michael van Gerwen faces Rob Cross - with the final then taking place on New Year's Day.

Fans in Pembrokeshire can watch Lewis' game on the Sky Sports Darts channel at 7.30pm tonight.
