Winning the second major title of his darts career, Gary Anderson has defeated Phil Taylor. The sensational 7-3 victory over the Power sees Anderson’s name added to the growing list of people that have “shut off the Power.”

Anderson picked up the International Darts League title in May and repeated his form on the Dutch stage to take the WDT title from Taylor.

The Scot inflicted only Taylor’s fourth defeat in a televised tournament in 14 years with a storming display, averaging over 103 and checking out 54.5 percent of his chances at the double.

Taylor himself averaged 102 and his total of 17 maximums in the match saw him smash the tournament record for 180s with 44, eclipsing Raymond van Barneveld’s previous best of 40.
