Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld will face off once again on Thursday 9 April. With the coronavirus pandemic postponing the darts season, the retired legends will play virtual darts in a charity fundraiser without leaving their homes to provide darts fans some much-needed entertainment. 

The pair amassed 21 world titles between them and developed a famous rivalry during their glittering careers. They played each other 83 times with many of those coming in Finals or major tournaments.

Using an interactive Target Nexus dartboard, Taylor and Van Barneveld will be allowed to see, speak to, and play each other from their own homes. It's a great way to provide entertainment while the players remain in complete isolation during lockdown.

The entire bullseye (including outer and as well as inner bull) is worth 50 in soft-tip darts, meaning this match could have one of the highest averages in darts history.
