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.
