World Cup of Darts: Damon Heta reveals why Australia have the edge in pairs format after Guyana win

The defending champions put on a solid display on the opening day of the World Cup of Darts.

Australia's Damon Heta and Simon Whitlock began their defence of the My Diesel Claim World Cup of Darts with a whitewash win over debutants Guyana in Frankfurt. 

Heta and Whitlock eased past Norman Madhoo and Sudesh Fitzgerald to storm to the top of Group C, as hosts Germany also made the perfect start to their campaign at the Eissporthalle.
The opening night of the revamped £450,000 tournament saw 12 group stage ties take place on Thursday, with Australia's reigning champions amongst the high-profile nations to triumph.
"It wasn't a great performance but we got the job done," said Australia's number one Heta, who warmed up for this event by scooping a Players Championship title on Tuesday.
"We move on to bigger and better things tomorrow night and hopefully we get the job done against Gibraltar.
"We have grown up in Australia playing Pairs, so I think this format suits us. We fancy our chances.
"We won this title last year and it's up to the other players to try and beat us, and that's how we are going to approach it."
