Bahrain Darts Masters: Luke Humphries admits he wants to bolster CV with World Series triumph

Luke Humphries, Luke Littler and Michael van Gerwen made winning returns to action as the 2024 Bahrain Darts Masters began on Thursday - but three stars were given scares in the first round.

The PDC World Series of Darts event in The Dome at the Bahrain International Circuit sees 16 players competing across two action-packed days - and it was the recent World Championship finalists who headlined the first round action.

Humphries produced a superb 6-0 whitewash over Bahrain's Abdulla Saeed in a strong start to life as World Champion.

The new world number one averaged over 98 and closed out a strong display against the qualifier with a 108 checkout as he moved through to a quarter-final tie with Gerwyn Price.

"I'm really pleased and obviously it was a decent performance," said Humphries, who has now won 20 consecutive matches.

"Abdulla played really good in patches, so it was important that I put in a good performance myself.

"I felt good up there and it was a solid performance; my scoring was good, my doubling was okay and I did what I needed to do.

"I hope the winning run keeps continuing. This is a fantastic World Series event, it's a great place to come and it would be a really nice one to put on my CV because the next thing for me is to win a World Series event."
