Schedule and preview Sunday evening session 2022 World Matchplay including Van Gerwen-Lewis and Humphries-Aspinall

Sunday night at the World Matchplay sees the brilliant ties continue with the 'Quarter of Death' taking centre stage in Blackpool in one of the toughest sections in years.

The star attraction will see two rivals collide once more as Michael van Gerwen who is favourite for the title despite just returning from surgery with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on his wrist with his only action in recent times coming during the Dutch Darts Masters only days after surgery.

He played well against Danny Noppert but the question will be can he do it over a sustained period and against Adrian Lewis who recently sealed his first title in three years. Can he provide the latest shock after Jonny Clayton and Gary Anderson have fallen already?

Luke Humphries is one of the favourites to lift the title after a stellar year but will head in as a player to be hunted and this time by Nathan Aspinall who himself has had a resurgent return to form as of late. A top tie to end the evening.

While two seeds could fall to start the night as Joe Cullen gets the most difficult tie possible based off the rankings with 'The Heat' Damon Heta - the top ProTour player set to face him. One of the most consistent players this year and a recent World Cup winner could dent the hopes of The Rockstar.

While Martin Lukeman will hope that the James Wade of late since being in hospital form wise will be ahead of him as he makes his World Matchplay debut. Can he live up to the occasion and dump out the former winner or will Wade do what Wade does and provide a solid display.
