Schedule European Darts Trophy Evening Session Day 2
The big guns of World Darts start their campaigns this evening at the European Darts Trophy. Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright in particular will be both vying to finish top of the European Order of Merit ahead of the European Championship and both face tough tests as they start their campaigns.
Mighty Mike will have the test of the Austrian, 'The Hypercane' Zoran Lerchbacher who isn't expected to beat the World Number One but could give him a scare.
Wright though is more likely out of the two to be tested, 'Snakebite' will have the test of the new man on the block in German Darts who will have the support of a home crowd in Martin Schindler who has had a great first year on the tour.
Of the other games, the new man on the block in PDC Darts in Rob Cross faces a resurgent Jamie Caven who is returning to a bit of form after a lean year or so.
Jelle Klaasen faces Chris Dobey in a potential brilliant contest and Simon Whitlock recent World Grand Prix finalist will face recent World Masters winner Krzyzstof Ratajski in what could be the game of the night.
