Cross averaged 102.03, threw four maximums, took out two 100-plus finishes and boasted an impressive 53.33 per cent checkout percentage.

Michael Van Gerwen remains hot on Cross’ heels following a 8-3 thumping of bottom-placed Michael Smith.

The Dutchman bounced back from last week’s draw with Gerwyn Price in style, averaging 109.11 ahead of next week’s showdown with Cross.

Daryl Gurney produced a 10-darter in the deciding leg to secure a 7-7 draw against third-placed James Wade.

Price moved up to fourth as, despite surrendering an early 3-0 lead, he beat Mensur Suljovic 8-5 in a scrappy contest.
