WATCH: Van Gerwen hits two incredible nine darters

Van Gerwen came very close to throwing back-to-back nine-darters in the PDC World Darts Championship during his match against James Wade in 2012.

16-time world champion Phil Taylor was the other player to hit a pair during his victory over James Wade in the 2010 Premier League Darts final.

Who did it better? Let us know.
