The Power faced his former protege in the semi-final of the 2013 Grand Slam of Darts and together they compiled a record-breaking 32 maximums as Taylor completed a famous 16-9 victory.This high-quality clash is considered the best of all time and Taylor and Lewis will meet again in the Premier League this Thursday in Exeter, live on Sky Sports 1.  Rod Studd watched from the commentary box while Taylor traded 180s with Lewis and looks back on a magical match in 2013... Relive the 2013 Grand Slam semi-final between Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor Taylor had Lewis had both averaged well over 100 when they had met in the World Matchplay final that summer, so so there was this great sense of anticipation when they collided again that November in Wolverhampton.Phil was enjoying a lengthy winning streak and seemed nigh on unbeatable, but Lewis had become his great rival and had started to beat his old mentor once or twice on television. I think we were all expecting a great match, but nothing like what actually unfolded. It was mind-boggling.We kind of got the inkling that something special might be in the air when Taylors first throw was a 180. In fact, he hit two 180s in the first leg, and then went 2-0 up. Lewis then came back with a couple of 180s to make it 2-1 and it developed into a really high-class tit-for-tat tussle. It became an addictive repetition of 180s, you just wanted more and more. Every 180 took you further into fever pitch. Rod Studd They were exchanging one leg after the other, with neither player being able to gain supremacy, and they were both playing incredible darts. The 180s just kept on coming and it became ludicrous. I think we had moved past 20 in total when Wayne Mardle famously said: Its literally laughable.It became an addictive repetition of 180s, you just wanted more and more. Every 180 took you further into fever pitch. At this ridiculous rate of heavy scoring - and Phil had two finishes of 167 and 160 - you just got carried away on a crest of a wave. I know the crowd did as well, along with everyone watching on television. The Power pullled away with a typical display of ruthless finishing It carried on like that until Lewis led 8-7 and then Taylor tapped the turbo, put on the afterburners, and ended up winning 16-9. The fact that Phil won quite easily on the scorecard did not detract from the greatest game of darts ever played on television. Phil himself said it was the best ever game seen on TV. He has played in some pretty amazing matches, so thats got to be the ultimate compliment, if the greatest of them all thinks that.Adrian ended up averaging 111 and Phil averaged 110, while Lewis had 18 maximums and Phil had 14. The combined 221 average of the two players has never been bettered. The quality and the relentless standard of it makes it the most memorable game ever played. Taylor embraced his former pupil at the end of the match At that time, 32 180s was a record in a PDC match, but Gary Anderson and Lewis broke it in the final of this years World Championship when they fired in 34.Watch Taylor and Lewis share the oche again on night five of the Premier League this Thursday, starting at 7pm on Sky Sports 1.  Or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.
