Former world champion John Higgins won the last six frames in a row to deny Wales' Jamie Jones a place in the Australian Open final.

Qualifier Jones, who hammered world number one Mark Selby 5-1 on his way to the last four, raced into a 4-0 lead against the Scot.

But Higgins put together breaks of 134 and 133 to complete a remarkable comeback.

Higgins will face Martin Gould in the final.
