The World Cup of Darts



Good afternoon everyone, Alistair Sargent (@AllyS_1988) making my ByTheMinute debut to bring you the action from the Eissporthalle in Frankfurt as PDC's World Cup of Darts reaches the quarter fonal stage

I'm excited to be here. Admittedly not quite as excited as China's Leng Xie, the star of day 3. Here is his rea ction to LOSING a leg

Four quarter finals ahead in this afternoon session. Canada v Northern Ireland; England v Austria; Scotland v Belgium and Australia v Netherlands. All gets under way in around 15 minutes time

This is what is in store from Frankfurt this afternoon

Quick reminder of the format... Ties are decided on a best of 3 basis Each player plays a singles match before, if needs be, a doubles tie where throw alternates between the players in each side

Canada vs Northern Ireland kicks us off. Canada are the only remaining non-seeds in the draw having caused a bit of an upset eliminating Wales yesterday

Three time World Champion John Part, more regularly a commentator at the big events these days represents Canada. He faces 'The History Maker' Brendan Dolan

Canada with the throw in leg one

180!! John Part hits the first maximum of the day

Canada 1-0 NI: John Part hits double 8 for a 13 dart leg
