World Series of Darts Order of Merit: James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld both move into top four with three events to go

James Wade and Raymond van Barneveld have hauled themselves into the top four of the World Series of Darts Order of Merit, following the completion of the Auckland Darts Masters yesterday.

Wade made it three successive semi-finals in Auckland this past weekend before bowing out to eventual winner Kyle Anderson, and has moved up to third in the Order of Merit.

Van Barneveld lost out to Phil Taylor in a last-leg decider in the quarter-finals but his run to the last eight has pushed him up from sixth to fourth.

Elsewhere, Michael van Gerwen saw his lead at the top cut by two points to 10 from 12. The world number one is skipping all three World Series events in Australasia this month to spend time with his wife and new-born daughter.

Taylor’s run to the semi-finals has seen him climb into the top eight, while Daryl Gurney continues to move up the rankings as he now sits in sixth place.

Auckland Darts Masters champion Kyle Anderson is joint eighth with Peter Wright, while runner-up Corey Cadby is in 11th spot.
