PDC World Cup of Darts - Dutch team
Official Statement on behalf of Jelle Klaasen

JELLE KLAASEN has confirmed he will unfortunately be unavailable for selection for the World Cup of Darts due to personal commitments.

The Dutch sensation admits he is disappointed to be missing out on the 2016 tournament but would like to wish the Netherlands' representatives the very best of luck in the competition.


==================================================


Irrespective of what he did Klaasen is above Barney in the OOM - he should not have been forced to give up the right to play in the World Cup of Darts by virtue of being the second highest ranked Dutch player.

Had a feeling this was coming

PDC have covered themselves by making a new rule for 2016 stating that the 32 pairs would be selected at the discretion of the PDC.

This will also allow them to keep Taylor in the England team when he slips further down the rankings due to not entering as many events

It got a bit awkward during their match at the weekend. At the end of the match Jelle was applauding MvG hitting the winning double and looked like he was waiting on the handshake. MvG gathered his darts, shook hands with the ref and markers and went and put his stuff away so Jelle had no option but to do the same. I know it has been cleared as ok for MvG to do this, but it looked awkward and strange for anyone not knowing the details watching on

Probably for the best, as Elusive said there was just too much awkwardness this weekend during the match. I imagine them playing in the same team won't work at all.

Wonder what the PDC would do if Klaasen wins the World Championship at the end of the year - would they leave the World Champ out of the pairing?

I think, as long as Barney is competitive, he will play together with MvG. And after that period, if Jelle is still second best Dutchman then, MvG will take it on a professional level and play together with him.

I was just thinking about this... Not really surprised I suppose...
It's actually a shame because I would like to see MVG and Klaasen team up.

If you look at what he has done this year since the Worlds then Barney isn't competitive. The best he has placed was semi final in the UK Open, quarter final in one of the UK Open qualifiers and a last 16 in the Masters. As far as the Pro Tour events go he has only bothered to enter the first two events - he never entered 3 to 7 and is also not included for 8 and 9 this weekend. On the Euro Tour events he hasn't got through the qualifiers for those either. Even the Premier League exbo event he finished 7th out of 10, miles behind the 4 players who made it through to finals night.

Klaasen on the other hand also reached the UK Open semi final, has had 3 other quarter finals, several last 16 places (also including the Masters) and has also qualified for all 4 Euro Tour events so far.

Based on results in 2016 Klaasen is far more competitive and deserving of a spot in the WCOD than Barney.

In all reality i dont think you'll see MVG & Klaasen ever play together, as mention after there match you could see MVG wanted nothing to do with Klaasen

I agree I can't see them ever playing together - but the PDC should have announced the teams and not told Klaasen to release the statement. Hopefully they gave him a decent enough pay off to say he couldn't make it.
