Van der Voort sees off Cullen in whitewash win, Harris breezes past out of sorts Chisnall

Vincent van der Voort is through to the second round at the World Series of Darts Finals after seeing off Joe Cullen in a brilliant whitewash win.

Cullen was the favourite for the match due to his PDC Autumn Series form but he struggled on the doubles hitting 0/8 against Van der Voort. Both struggled themselves in the early going with Van der Voort pinning double 1 to double his lead and he was soon surging towards the win with a break of throw making it 4-0 with Cullen only averaging 82.

The interval was set at 5-0 as Cullen had a mountain to climb to get back into the tie but he had no answer to the Dutchman as he claimed a 14 darter for the win.

Cody Harris is also through to the second round where a tie with Daryl Gurney awaits after seeing off an out of sorts Dave Chisnall .

Harris only averaged 89 but didn’t have to produce his best darts with Chisnall only averaging 79 with a 6-2 victory for ‘Code Star’. The latter started with a 180 but missed two darts at doubles and as a result, Harris hit the front with an instant break of throw. He followed that up with an 11-darter doubling his advantage.

Chisnall levelled up though with a 119 checkout en route to a 2-2 scoreline but more missed darts at double saw Harris lead 3-2.

He returned from the break hitting double 20 for a two leg cushion at 4-2 and he was soon away and one from victory at 5-2 before closing it out.
