Sheffield, May 3 (IANS): Stuart Bingham beat Judd Trump 17-16 in a thrilling semi-final to set up a final showdown with 2005 winner Shaun Murphy at the snooker world championship here.

The 38-year-old Bingham, who had previously never been in the last eight, led Trump 13-9 before the evening session on Saturday. But the 25-year-old Trump, the 2011 finalist, pulled it even at 16-16 with back-to-back century breaks of 108 and 129, reports Xinhua.

In the biggest frame of his career, Bingham, who defeated five-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan in the quarter-finals, used all his experience to edge Trump in the decider.

"It's unbelievable, I cant believe I'm in the world final," said Bingham.

Earlier, Murphy, who also reached the final in 2009, overpowered the 2013 finalist Barry Hawkins 17-9.

"It's unbelievable, something I never thought I'd do again," said Murphy.

The final will be held on Sunday and Monday.
