Kyren Wilson has been the form player at the Crucible in recent years, and is looking to convert that into a maiden title in 2022.

The Warrior was defeated 10-7 by Ricky Walden in the opening round of his debut in 2014, but has not looked back since.

Indeed, Wilson has reached six successive World Championship quarter-finals, and least the semis in three of the last four years.

The world number five was runner-up to Ronnie O’Sullivan in 2020, while it took an inspired Shaun Murphy turnaround to deny him a second final appearance on the spin 12 months ago.

Wilson will be hoping to make that next step this year, but has been handed arguably the toughest first-round tie in 2016 finalist Ding Junhui.

Nevertheless, he is confident his recent exploits on snooker’s biggest stage will stand him in good stead this time around.
