World Series of Darts Finals 2020 preview and schedule: Sunday September 20

Watch out, pigeons of Salzburg; it's the World Series of Darts Finals, and there are seeds all over the place.

Only one seed fell on Saturday - though it was a big one (more on that later). Daryl Gurney had no such issues, racking up a 102.2 average to send Cody Harris packing. It's the springboard for a good tournament, unless Peter Wright scuppers those plans. The world champ is now the highest seed left in the World Series of Darts Finals , and in the form he's in, he remains the hot favourite.

The second tie should produce plenty of scoring power, as Nathan Aspinall and Gerwyn Price - who both nothed 101 averages in their first game - locking horns. Price copped a bit of stick from the Austrian crowd, which shows that darts fans haven't lost that pantomime spirit. It won't bother the Welshman, though Aspinall likely will.

Glen Durrant remains Michael van Gerwen's TV boogeyman. It was a stoic and classy performance which saw Duzza topple the top seed on Saturday; the sort of showing that a champion puts in. A first TV title is on Durrant's horizon, but will it be here? He takes on James Wade , who is now the only former winner involved.

Michael Smith skipped over a banana skin in the form of Krzysztof Ratajski, winning 6-4 in a decent display. There were some big missed doubles again, but practically all of them were by a hair's breadth, which doesn't suggest a major issue. Rob Cross also enjoyed quite a morale-piquing Saturday, though Steve Beaton simply didn't show up. Smith won't make that error, so it's likely to be a tight battle between the duo who'll once again form England's World Cup team when The Best Tournament In Darts* returns.

*No, seriously, it is.
