AUSTRALIAN DUO CLASH AGAIN AT BRISBANE DARTS MASTERS

SIMON WHITLOCK and Corey Cadby will lock horns again when they clash in the first round of the inaugural Brisbane Darts Masters on Friday.
The PDC World Series of Darts' first visit to Brisbane will see 16 players compete from August 17-19 at the BCEC in the sixth international event of the year.
Top Australian pair Whitlock and Cadby will headline Friday's opening night as they meet for a second successive week on the World Series circuit.
Whitlock, the former European Championship winner and World Championship finalist who previously lived in Queensland, took a 6-4 win when the pair met at the Melbourne Darts Masters.
Former World Youth Champion Cadby, though, will be aiming for revenge as the World Series of Darts event begins in Brisbane.
Peter Wright, last week's Melbourne Darts Masters champion, begins his challenge to claim back-to-back titles against Australian qualifier Justin Thompson.
World number one Michael van Gerwen has drawn New Zealand's Mark Cleaver, who has previously competed twice in the Auckland Darts Masters.
World Champion Rob Cross plays Tim Pusey, while recent World Matchplay winner Gary Anderson has drawn Perth's Damon Heta, who was a quarter-finalist in Melbourne.
Shanghai Darts Masters winner Michael Smith drew Brisbane's Raymond Smith, while Queenslander Gordon Mathers will take on five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld.
2017 Auckland Darts Masters winner Kyle Anderson, another former Queensland resident, will play fellow West Australian Barry Gardner, who is making his World Series of Darts debut.
Friday's first round at the BCEC will be followed by the quarter-finals on Saturday and the semi-finals and final on Sunday. For tickets, visit www.ticketek.com.au.
The Brisbane Darts Masters will be broadcast live on Fox Sports across Australia and worldwide through the PDC's international broadcast partners, as well as through PDCTV-HD for Rest of the World Subscribers (outside of the UK, Ireland & Netherlands).
