Rob Cross defends his World Matchplay title as the 32 best players on planet darts head to Milton Keynes for the year’s second-biggest major.

There will be no afternoon sessions at this year’s Matchplay, instead the first round matches will be spread across the first four days of action.

That means an earlier than usual start for the first four days, with coverage getting underway at the Marshall Arena from 6pm.
