Cross, Ratajski and White to feature in Groups 21-24 on the PDC Home Tour
Former world champion Rob Cross headlines the next batch of confirmed groups on the PDC Home Tour.
Cross, whose grandfather recently passed away at the hands of coronavirus, will take on two-time world youth champion Dimitri Van den Bergh, Derk Telnekes and William Borland in Thursday’s Group 21.
Following the world number four’s appearance, Ian White and Danny Noppert feature in Friday’s action. The pair will be joined by Spain’s Jesus Noguera and James Wilson.
Former Auckland Darts Masters champion Anderson, who recently received the all-clear after spending a month in isolation with coronavirus, will make a welcome return to action on Saturday.
Anderson’s Group 23 will see four international players join the live broadcast, as he is joined by Germany’s Martin Schindler, Dutchman Dirk van Duijvenbode and Sweden’s Daniel Larsson.
World number 18 Krzysztof Ratajski will then become the second Polish player to enter the fray on Sunday following the valiant efforts of Krzysztof Kciuk.
‘The Polish Eagle’ competes in a mouth-watering Group 24 alongside Lithuania’s World Championship quarter-finalist Darius Labanauskas, Jamie Hughes and Spain’s Toni Alcinas.
The nightly league format will see all four competitors play each other once in matches played over the best of nine legs, with a winner crowned each night.
