The World Series edges closer to its conclusion with the Melbourne Darts Masters.

We’ll definitely be seeing Damon Heta at the season-ending World Series of Darts Finals. The Aussie star stormed to a remarkable victory at the Brisbane Darts Masters. The DPA number one will be looking to keep up the momentum at this weekend’s Melbourne Darts Masters.

The players he beat – James Wade, Gary Anderson, Simon Whitlock and Rob Cross – will all be back, looking to improve on their Brisbane result. Defending champion Peter Wright will be there too (though 2018 beaten finalist Michael Smith isn’t invited).

Michael van Gerwen, Daryl Gurney and Raymond van Barneveld are all on board too.

Joining the homegrown ranks for the Melbourne Darts Masters are Tim Pusey, along with debutants Robbie King and Mick Lacey.

Returning after a short Brisbane stint are Kyle Anderson and Corey Cadby, plus James Bailey and Haupai Puha.

ITV4 Guide for the Melbourne Darts Masters 2019

Like with the Brisbane Darts Masters, ITV4 will be covering the tournament on a delay. UK viewers will be able to watch the full day’s play from 7pm.

The Friday session ‘starts’ at 7pm and ends at 11pm. So too does the Saturday showing, which will include the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

It means that once again, it’s best to avoid social media if you’re looking for a spoiler-free day. Of course, if you’re looking to keep up with the action, it’s dead easy. Our livescore feature is a good place to start.

Friday August 16: 7pm – 11pm (First round)
Saturday August 17: 7pm – 11pm (Quarter-finals, semi-finals and final)
