Delayed recovery rules Michael van Gerwen out of the World Cup of Darts

The Netherlands have sent Dirk van Duijvenbode a late SoS after Michael van Gerwen was ruled out of being able to compete at the World Cup of Darts in Frankfurt.

Michael van Gerwen has been forced to withdraw from the 2023 My Diesel Claim World Cup of Darts and will be replaced by Dirk van Duijvenbode in the Netherlands team.
Van Gerwen had a pre-planned dental operation on Monday and has not recovered sufficiently to be able to compete in Frankfurt this weekend.
As Dirk van Duijvenbode is the next highest-ranked Dutch player in the PDC Order of Merit, he will now partner Danny Noppert for the second successive year.
The change now means that the Netherlands will become the third seeds for the Second Round draw, with Wales' Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton moving up to second seeds.
The 2023 My Diesel Claim World Cup of Darts starts on Thursday, June 15, with the seeded nations entering in the Second Round on Saturday.
