Van Gerwen responds to Anderson and Wright's withdrawals for World Cup: 'I actually think that's cowardly'

The World Cup of Darts is set to take place at the Salzburgarena in Austria from 6-8 November with Danny Noppert set to join Michael van Gerwen in the Netherlands line-up for the first time.

"Another partner, but I'm definitely looking forward to it", said Van Gerwen on RTL 7. "Last year, I reached the semi-finals with Jermaine Wattimena (2-1 loss against Ireland.), That was ok but certainly not great, this year must be better. "

Reigning champion Scotland has to do without reigning champions Gary Anderson and Peter Wright this year, who opted not to travel to Austria due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. "I actually think that's cowardly", Van Gerwen is clear in his opinion. Scotland now will have Robert Thornton and John Henderson as their representatives.
