World Snooker Championship final LIVE: Mark Selby takes on Shaun Murphy for glory

Shaun Murphy has vowed to entertain in his fourth World Championship final – despite criticism over his celebrations.

Murphy takes on Mark Selby today in the first day of the final after cruising past Kyren Wilson in his semi-final, though his fist-pumping was not particularly well received.

“We are in the entertainment business. Everybody’s been locked up and isolated for the past year and they want to see a show, and it’s our job to put on a show and entertain them.

“There is more to winning major snooker events in front of live audiences than just hitting the cue ball in a straight line. There’s a lot more that goes into it than on-the-table theatrics, and maybe that’s a stone Kyren hasn’t looked under yet.”

Selby, meanwhile, edged past Stuart Bingham to make the final, claiming a 17-15 win late into Saturday night.
