Rob Cross became the highest ranked player to win his group on the Unibet Home Tour so far as he won all three games on Night 21.
The world number saw off William Borland, Dimitri Van den Bergh and Karel Sedlacek to top the group.
A routine 5-2 victory over Borland kicked things off, before edging out Van den Bergh 5-4 in a bizarre game in which he averaged nearly 10 points less than his opponent and survived a number of matched darts.
But it was in the final game of the night that Cross displayed his best stuff. Sedlacek started in superb fashion, moving into a 4-0 lead and looking set to top the group.
Cross then began to find his champion’s touch and fired in some incredible stuff to clinch five straight legs and seal the victory.
Van den Bergh ended the night in second spot with his early 5-1 victory over Sedlacek boosting his leg difference, but he was on the receiving end of a superb performance from Borland in the penultimate game of the night, with the young Scot averaging 103.8 in a 5-3 victory.
The Unibet Home Tour continues tomorrow and can be watched live and free through PDCTV for registered users (new users can sign up for FREE here), as well as through bookmakers’ websites and international broadcasters.
Karel Sedlacek will replace Derk Telnekes in Thursday’s Unibet Home Tour Group 21.
Czech Republic number one Sedlacek will take the place of Dutchman Telnekes, who is now unable to compete on Thursday for family reasons with his wife’s shifts as a healthcare worker in the Netherlands having changed.
Telnekes is, though, still hoping to take part in the Unibet Home Tour in one of the remaining group phase nights this month.
Sedlacek will now join former World Champion Rob Cross in Group 21 on Thursday evening for what promises to be another memorable night of live darts being shown on PDCTV, through international broadcasters and via bookmakers’ websites.
Group 21 will also feature two-time World Youth Champion Dimitri Van den Bergh and emerging Scottish talent William Borland.
