2019 World Cup of Darts
Even though Anderson and Gurney have swapped a couple of times for 3rd place in the order of merit, as it stands for the first time in a few years England are set to be the number 1 seeds but won't avoid a semi final clash with the Dutch again if they both get through because they have dropped to fourth.

Not sure what the selection criteria is but the PDCN&B obviously aren't using the current OOM for their pairings which are:

Denmark - Per Laursen and Niels Heinsøe
Finland - Marko Kantele and Kim Viljanen
Sweden - Dennis Nilsson and Magnus Caris


God knows how Caris got picked for Sweden given he isn't even playing on the N&B tour this year.

If they were going by the top two in the current OOM then the pairings would have been:

Denmark - Per Laursen and Steen Lysen
Finland - Ulf Ceder and Marko Kantele
Sweden - Dennis Nilsson and Oskar Lukasiak
They are using the main rankings, that's how Viljanen and Caris got in, as both played in Euro Tours this year. Not sure about the rest though.
Last weekend during the Swedish national league final weekend in Kalmar I heard that Caris made a 2000 sek bet with a friend that world cup of darts will be his final international tournament of his life.
Just seen on twitter that the Chinese pairing will be Qingyu Zhan and Xiaochen Zong - the were the Chinese World Youth Championship participants in the last two years
Would have hoped to see Cross and Wade for England with James return to some great form

Current Board 
Gladiator 3 with Corona Surround and Unicorn number ring
20 gram Darts Clearance, Harrows super grip fusion stems, Rapide flights with Target titanium stem rings   

Playing 40 years on and off and still barely average                 

Not going to happen. Very rare that it's not the top two. Smith even said in a Live Darts TV interview he's looking forward to the world cup with Cross.
Switzerland are no longer in the World Cup and their place has been taken by Lithuania - the Lithuania pairing will be Darius Labanauskas and Mindaugas Barauskas

The USA pairing has also been confirmed as Darin Young and Chuck Puleo.

I already posted the China pairing a couple of days ago.

World Cup teams will be announced today it seems.

Teams are announced and they have seen sense and left out Barney - Wattimena is partnering MVG
