Wright joins exclusive club of former World Champions with World Matchplay win
Peter Wright is the fifth player ever to win both the World Darts Championship and the World Matchplay. This past Sunday, Snakebite won the World Matchplay by beating Dimitri van den Bergh in the final.
In the past, only Phil Taylor, Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson and Rob Cross have also won the two showpiece tournaments.
Of these names, Taylor, Van Gerwen and Anderson also triumphed in the Premier League Darts. This prestigious tournament, together with the World Championship and the World Matchplay, is part of the so-called 'Triple Crown' of darts.
