World Cup of Darts teams confirmed: Smith and Wattimena make their debuts

All teams for this years' World Cup of Darts have been confirmed with Michael Smith and Jermaine Wattimena both set to make their debuts from 6-9 June in Hamburg. Last year the Netherlands claimed victory for a fourth time in the tournament.

Rob Cross and Michael Smith who form the English pairing will be number one seeds at the World Cup of Darts ; with Gary Anderson and Peter Wright continuing their partnership in second. The only other team to change in the top eight is the Dutch pairing, with Raymond van Barneveld not receiving his swansong in a tournament which has accounted for the bulk of his title wins over the past few years. 'Barney' won three World Cup of Darts titles with Michael van Gerwen . Instead Jermaine Wattimena will get his chance to shine at the World Cup of Darts . The Dutchman put in some superb performances as of late, including a maiden Pro Tour final in February. Also Paul Lim will return once again to take his place with Harith Lim in the usual dangerous Singapore pairing who famously accounted for Scotland two years ago.
