Just not a whitewash for Van Gerwen

Van Gerwen had little trouble with Rob Cross: 7-2. The number one of the world got to 6-0 even the chance at a whitewash, but he missed two arrows on double 4.

Cross benefited, then picked up a leg and also got an arrow for 6-3, but on the eighth matchdart was the touch for the Dutchman.

The reigning world champion threw just fine with an average of almost 102 per three arrows, while Cross not his best level of his career. The 28-year-old Englishman, world champion of 2018, sat with his average of just above 93 points.

Van Gerwen, who is the Premier League the last three years and in 2013 won, was in the first round too strong for the Englishman, Michael Smith (7-5) and beat last week in Glasgow Suljovic (7-3).
