Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright are the next players through as the latest World Series event, the Melbourne Darts Masters continues.

Van Gerwen was a class apart as he sent a message to the competition with an 113 average in a 6-1 win over Raymond Smith. Six 180’s and a 75% checkout percentage gave Mighty Mike an imperious win to continue his resurgence.

Wright similarly looked good as he completed the first whitewash of today’s proceedings. It was 6/6 on the doubles alongside the 99 average as ‘Snakebite’ proved too good for the qualifier.
