Kyren Wilson through to Crucible final after ‘most incredible frame EVER’

Kyren Wilson made it through to the World Championship final in unforgettable fashion after winning what has been deemed the ‘most incredible’ frame the sport has ever seen.

The world number 8 will play either Ronnie O’Sullivan or Mark Selby in this weekend’s grand final after coming through an incredibly dramatic final frame decider against Anthony McGill – a frame that had a record-breaking total of 186 points!

An incredible and nervy decider had excitement and drama all the way which remarkably had a final score of 103-83.

It lasted longer than an hour and had more twists and turns than a Harry Potter thriller.

McGill was looking good for victory but cruelly ran out of position after a brave split into the reds.

Wilson battled back and he looked to secure the win until he surprisingly missed the final red into the middle pocket.

McGill then conceded 35 points after missing a snooker eight times – only for Wilson to foul twice giving his opponent fresh hope on the final colours.

A fascinating battle then was played for the final red which was stuck on the knuckle of the middle pocket for a while before McGill knocked it in using the baulk cushion.

The Scot then looked like he was going to clinch the win of his life but in an another incredible twist saw him snooker himself behind the pink for the final green.

A safety exchange then saw Wilson incredibly fluke the green when it looked like he was leaving it over the pocket – meaning McGill would require snookers.

Despite looking shell-shocked with his run of the ball, Wilson then ended any hope of a McGill win by potting in a final pink to reach the World Championship final for the first time.

Many in the game hailed it the best frame they had ever seen.

In the commentary box seven times world champion Stephen Hendry said: “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

World number two Neil Robertson tweeted: “Not many sports can compete with snooker for drama.”

And Eurosport snooker pundit Neal Foulds said: “This is the most incredible frame of snooker I’ve ever seen.”

  1. Unbelievable frame of snooker. Sure to be shown again for years to come. I hope for Kyran Wilson sake he recovers, must be both physically and mentally exhausted
