Wayne Mardle cant speak in amazing commentary of Michael Smith nine-darter
Wayne Mardle summed up the emotions of darts fans worldwide as he called Michael Smith’s nine-darter in the greatest leg in the sport’s history.
With Michael van Gerwen one set in front and at 1-1 in the second set, both players hit six perfect darts. Van Gerwen then hit two more, only to narrowly miss double 12 for a nine-darter.
However, Smith was not to be denied, nailing double 12 with his ninth dart of the leg to spark wild scenes in the crowd. It was only the second nine-darter in a World Championship final and the first since Adrian Lewis hit one against Gary Anderson in 2011.
