Gary Anderson and Rob Cross have made sure that there will be no shocks as of yet in the Melbourne Darts Masters.

Anderson was really impressive in seeing off James Bailey hitting a 107 average in a 6-2 win. The Scotsman also hit 50% of his doubles and barring a 130 checkout out of nowhere from Bailey it probably would have been a whitewash.

Cross also won 6-2 against Puha who was impressive last week, but he couldn’t repeat that in Melbourne. A 92 average with 35% on his doubles won the tie for ‘Voltage’. He will move through to face Michael Smith on Saturday in the quarter-finals.
