Premier League Darts: Rotterdam

ByTheMinDarts

Fair play to Gurney, he was always there or there abouts in the legs, but an in-form Gary is a relentless opponent.

Averages: Anderson: 110.46 Gurney: 93.00 180s: Anderson: 5 Gurney: 4 High C/O: Anderson: 170 Gurney: 70

I'll let you catch your breath after that masterpiece, but don't go anywhere as world champion Rob Cross will shortly be taking on world number 2 Peter Wright in what could be a high quality affair.

Wright is currently bottom of the remaining eight players, but could temporarily hit the fifth spot with a win over Cross here.

The players are ready to go. Kirk Bevins calling. And it'll be Rob to throw first. Game on!

A 12-darter for Cross to start things off! D16, last dart in hand, and Cross takes the 1-0 lead.

Wright misses tops to check out 80, meanwhile Cross attempts to go double-double to take out 136. Unsuccessful, but Wright can't go out either. Cross steps up to the task and breaks. 2-0 Cross.

Lovely 177 from Cross to leave him with 12, which he takes out, first dart, to lead 3-0.

Early averages: Cross: 104.85 Wright: 85.23

Wright hits the first 180 of the match, then checks out 97 in three darts to get on the scoreboard. That'll make him feel good! 3-1 Cross.
