Who Are The Favourites For The 2021 World Cup of Darts?
- Wales – Trumping England in the 2020 final with a 101 average, the Welsh pairing of Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton are strong contenders to retain their crown. In Price and Clayton, Wales possess the PDC World Championship and Premier League titles from earlier in the year, and will be hard to budge in Jena.
- England – England are without a World Cup win since Phil Taylor’s retirement. ‘The Power’ guided England to four of the first six crowns with Adrian Lewis, with Dave Chisnall and James Wade the two players tasked with regaining the trophy in 2021. Wade is a consistent title winner; Chisnall is a competent ‘nearly man’.
- Netherlands – The Netherlands have won this title three times – all with the partnership of Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld. MVG has Dirk van Duijvenbode by his side in 2021 and both are extremely hard to beat on their day.
- Scotland – 2019 winners Gary Anderson and Peter Wright are back at the World Cup looking to gain their second title. Wright is arguably playing the best darts in the world at current following his Matchplay title and will be in the talented company of two-time world champion Gary Anderson.
