Bihar, who began the final day at 111/8 with a herculean task of making Andhra bat again with 170 runs in arrears and two wickets in hand, folded for a mere 124 in their second innings to cede their opponents a massive win here at the Moin Ul Haq Stadium.

Bihar batters flopped collectively in the contest as they had managed just 182 in the first innings, against which Andhra replied with a massive 463, taking a lead of 281 runs.

Nithish Kumar Reddy was the Player of the Match for his 159, with Andhra also grabbing a bonus point.

Jharkhand pulverise Manipur by innings and 102 runs in Ranji Trophy

Jharkhand completed a comprehensive victory by an innings and 102 runs here on Monday to clinch seven points in their Elite Group A match of the Ranji Trophy on Monday.

Jharkhand dominated the game through the course of play on all four days as they dismissed Manipur for a paltry 170 in the first innings and took a massive 334-run lead as they piled up 504/5 declared.

There was no change in fortunes with the bat for Manipur in the second essay despite skipper K Langlonyamba Meitan’s 88, as they folded for 232 to hand Jharkhand a victory with a bonus point here at the Keenan Stadium.

Keishangbam faced 157 balls and hit 12 fours and a six to delay the inevitable but no other Manipur batter could resist for long, with Jharkhand’s Pankaj Raunak returning 4/22 from his 14.3 overs.

In another match, Rajasthan earned three points by virtue of first-innings lead of a mere 41 runs as they played out a draw against Vidarbha at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

In reply to the hosts Rajasthan’s total of 432 for which they consumed more than 130 overs, Vidarbha kept them on the field for about similar time duration, facing 125.3 overs to make 391.

Karun Nair struck a 258-ball 112 with 12 fours to top score for Vidarbha while skipper and wicketkeeper-batter Akshay Wadkar made 59 and Yash Rathod scored 81.

Delhi stay second from last after another poor batting show against Baroda

Delhi produced yet another inept batting performance on Monday to end up with a single point against Baroda in a Group D match, thereby dashing hopes of a knock-out qualifications in this year’s Ranji Trophy. After Baroda declared their first innings at 435 for 9, Delhi starting the day at 113 for 4, and they were all-out for 177. Adding insult to injury, Baroda skipper Vishnu Solanki enforced the follow-on and Delhi crawled to 68 for 1 in 34 overs when the two captains decided to shake hands.

Delhi are now placed seventh in Group D with eight points from five games and two left — one away against Himachal Pradesh and one at home against Odisha. Baroda are through to knock-outs with 23 points from five games.

Delhi need to ensure that they get the first innings lead against HP in the Dharamsala match in order to avoid relegation, which would be a first in their history.

In a weather-affected match, Delhi could have easily prevented Baroda from getting a first innings lead on a docile track which would have at least given them psychological advantage.

However, there was distinct lack of application from Delhi’s young batting line-up as six wickets fell for 64 runs in little under 21 overs.

Atit Seth (3/39 in 14 overs), a medium pacer, who till last year had played for India, got three wickets while left-arm spinner Bhargav Bhatt (3/18) quickly wrapped up the tail.

Once Ayush Badoni (44) nicked one to Shivalik Sharma in the slips off Seth, there was no resistance from other batters.

From their body language, one could gauge that despite there being nothing on offer for bowlers on the flat Airforce Stadium track, the young Delhi batters were jittery because of overcast weather and their inability to counter swing bowling.

Former India U-19 captain Yash Dhull, whom many considered as the next big batting talent from Delhi, came in at No. 9 as he had scratched his knee and lower abdomen while fielding.

He however came out to open in the second innings when the match as a contest was all but over.

Brief Scores In Delhi: Baroda 435/9 dec. Delhi 177 in 56.2 overs (Ayush Badoni 44, Jonty Sidhu 40, Atit Seth 3/39, Bhargav Bhatt 3/18) & (f/o) 68/1 in 34 overs (Yash Dhull 39 not out).

Points: Baroda 3; Delhi 1 In Cuttack: Odisha 322 and 201 (Govinda Poddar 46, Gourav Yadav 3/48, Sagar Udeshi 4/45).

Puducherry 284 and (Target 240) 175/8 (Paras Ratnaparkhe 72, Biplab Samantray 2/28). Odisha 3. Puducherry 1.

In Jammu: J&K 168/2 vs Uttarakhand. J&K 1. Uttarakhand 1.

In Dharamsala: Himachal Pradesh 169 and 42/5 (Anubhav Agarwal 4/6).

Madhya Pradesh 217 (Venkatesh Iyer 72).

Points: MP 3. HP 1.

Tamil Nadu beat Goa by 7 wickets in Ranji Trophy Group C

In reply, Jaiswal’s impressing knock made sure India remained on top. (Scorecard)

Here are the Highlights of India vs England 1st Test Day 1, Straight from Hyderabad







  • 16:44 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Stumps on Day 1!

    That is Stumps on the first day of the 1st Test between India and England in Hyderabad. The Rohit Sharma-led side will be really happy with the kind of performance. They first bowled England out for 246 and then posted 119/1, thanks to Yahsasvi Jaiswal’s 76 off only 70 balls.

    IND 119/1 (23)

  • 16:41 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: FOUR!

    A full toss from Rehan Ahmed and Shubman Gill flicked it away for a four to wide of long-on. It was put well in the gap from the right-handed batter. That is also the first boundary from the bat of Gill. More 5 balls remaining in Day1’s play.

    IND 115/1 (22.1)

  • 16:37 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: SIX!

    That is a superb shot from Yashsavi Jaiswal for a six. He came down the track on the bowling of Rehan Ahmed and slammed the ball over the long-on fence for a big six. India are bossing this game at the moment. They trail England by 136 runs with two overs left in the innings.

    IND 110/1 (21)

  • 16:20 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: India aim to rebuild!

    The duo of Yashsavi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill have added 7 runs off 23 balls for the second wicket so far. Gill is taking his time as he is on 3 off 19 balls.

    IND 87/1 (16)

  • 16:12 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: England lose all 3 reviews!

    With a lot of dare, England used their only remaining review on an LBW call against Shubman Gill and it failed. The ball did hit Gill’s front pad but ball projection showed that it would have went over the stumps. Gill is lucky there and so unlucky are England.  

    IND 83/1 (13.2)

  • 16:07 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: OUT!

    Here is the first breakthrough for England! Rohit Sharma jumps out of his crease to play a big shot but instead lost his wicket. He hit the ball high in the air before Ben Stokes took the catch at around the mid-on region. Rohit departs at the score of 24 off 27 balls.

    IND 80/1 (12.2)

  • 15:59 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Fifty!

    Fifty for Jaiswal! A four and that is the fifty for Jaiswal. He gets there in only 47 balls. What a knock this has been. He has completely dominated the England bowlers.

  • 15:55 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: FOUR!

    Fuller ball outside off stump from Jack Leach and Yashasvi Jaiswal drives it away for a four. The ball whizzed past the mid-off fielder for the boundary. Jaiswal is on 46 now.

    IND 72/0 (10.5)

  • 15:51 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: FOUR!

    A fuller ball from Tom Hartley and Rohit Sharma sweeps it for a four through the square leg region. Hartley has been really expensive for England, conceding 44 runs in 4.1 overs. 

    IND 68/0 (9.1)

  • 15:38 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Expensive over!

    Tom Hartley conceded two fours in his third over. First Jaiswal hit a four down the ground before Rohit Sharma boasted his wristly flick to get another four in the over. A total of 9 runs came off it.

    IND 48/0 (6)

  • 15:28 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: FOUR!

    Short ball from Tom Hartley and that was pulled away for a four from Yashasvi Jaiswal. He is playing his shots here Jaiswal and that is a good strategy considering an older ball will not be easy to score runs.

    IND 29/0 (3.2)

  • 15:22 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Foakes with a spear!

    This is hilarious! Ben Foakes crashed into the stumps and took out all three pegs. He was collecting Pope’s throw and lost his focus. Even the England players are having a laugh about it.

  • 15:16 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Six runs!

    Jaiswal takes the aerial route! He welcomes Hartley to Test cricket with a six. Jaiswal didn’t get to the pitch but went through to clear wide long-on.

    IND vs ENG Live: What a shot!

    Jaiswal is off the mark in a flash! He  is away in a jiffy as he whips him over square leg for four.

    ENG: 241/9

  • 14:48 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: BOWLED HIM!

    Ashwin has knocked Wood over. He went for an expansive slog sweep, but misses it altogether as he’s way too early into the shot

    Mark Wood b Ashwin 11 (24)

    ENG: 234/9

  • 14:38 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Stokes goes out of the park!

    50 up for Stokes with that six! This has been a calm and composed innings from the England captain. He has upped the tempo after the last wicket.

    ENG: 226/8

  • 14:36 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Play resumes!

    We are back! So, the third and final session begins. England, with Stokes out there in the middle, have a realistic chance of touching 250. However, he needs Wood and Leach to bat deep with him.

  • 14:15 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: End of the session!

    England 215/8 in 59 overs (B Stokes 43*, M Wood 7*; R Jadeja 3/17) against India at Tea on Day 1.

    Good session of play with five wickets falling for 107 runs. Jadeja took two while Axar also bagged a couple. No wicket for Ashwin in this session.

  • 14:07 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Stokes on fire!

    Stokes moves to 43! Three boundaries in that Jadeja over. The England captain has made up his mind. He is not going down without a fight. Looked really calm before Hartley got out

    ENG: 210/8

  • 14:00 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Off-Stump Flattened!

    Catches Hartley off guard! He goes for a sweep but Jadeja manages to sneak in with a sharp turner. The ball drifted across from around the stumps and ripped back in from the rough

    Tom Hartley b Jadeja 23 (24)

    ENG: 193/8

  • 13:52 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Six runs!

    Hartley goes the distance! No one at deep square and he has walloped this slog sweep for six.  We have the first six of the match. Excellent shot

    ENG: 184/7

  • 13:48 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Stokes holds key!

    Stokes has looked very composed despite wickets falling at other end. Need someone to bat with him. Considering the reach he has, Stokes might be the only one who can tackle the Indian spinners.

    ENG: 174/7 (53)

  • 13:33 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: WICKET!

    Bumrah joins the party! Just kisses the inside edge and carried through to Bharat, who dives forward to complete an excellent catch. Ahmed departs

    Edged and gone! Foakes had trusted his method but Axar gets the better of him. Axar gets his second and England are now six down

    Ben Foakes c Bharat b Patel 4 (24)

    ENG: 137/6

  • 13:00 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Stokes-Foakes Key!

    Stokes and Foakes are taking this slow and easy! England need a partnership here. Anything over 200+ would be a bonus for England. Batting on this track will only get difficult

    ENG: 135/5 (41)

  • 12:46 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Another one bites the dust!

    WICKET! England have lost half of their team. Root sweeps, Jadeja strikes… top-edged to short fine leg! India in complete control now

    Joe Root c Bumrah b Jadeja 29 (60)

    ENG: 125/5

  • 12:33 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Bowled him!

    BOWLED HIM! Axar cleans up Bairstow with a jaffa. He was trapped on the crease and can’t cover the spin. The partnership is broken

    Jonny Bairstow b Patel 37 (58)

    ENG: 121/4

  • 12:27 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Bairstow nearing his 50!

    Bairstow is 13 runs away from a hard-fought half-century. However, the Indian spinners have put their best foot forward after lunch.

  • 12:15 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Play resumes after Lunch!

    ENG: 108/3

  • 11:24 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Cut away by Bairstow!

    Flashed past slip! Bairstow shows quick wrists to find the gap. He’s played that late cut very effectively so far today

    ENG: 99/3 (24.3)

  • 11:16 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Crunched to long-off!

    Ashwin misses his length! Another full toss and Bairstow obliges. He beats mid-off comfortably to his right. Excellent control on that shot

    ENG: 92/3 (21.6)

  • 11:09 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Ball being changed!

    India have asked the question about the state of the ball. The umpire agrees that it has gone out of shape. They are changing it at the moment.

    ENG: 80/3 (20)

  • 10:52 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: What a catch!

    Ashwin strikes again! Crawley drills this straight to mid-off. The ball was dying on Siraj, but it looks like he managed to get fingers under it. Given out after a TV check from the third umpire

    Zak Crawley c Mohammed Siraj b Ashwin 20 (40)

    ENG: 60/3

  • 10:41 (IST)

    Ollie Pope c Sharma b Jadeja 1 (11)

    ENG: 58/2

  • 10:27 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: OUT!

    Ashwin strikes! India finally have the breakthrough as Ashwin beats the inside edge of Duckett. Hit on the pads and umpire raises his finger. Duckett isn’t quite sure so he opts for DRS. Ashwin gets the umpire’s call. Duckett has to walk back 

    Ben Duckett lbw b Ashwin 35 (39)

    ENG: 55/1

  • 10:20 (IST)

    IND vs ENG Live: Duckett on the charge!

    Swept away by Duckett! He fetches it from middle-and-off, races to the square leg boundary. Has swept almost everything this morning

ICC Under-19 World Cup 2024: Full Schedule, Teams, Squads, Telecast, Live Streaming And More | Cricket News




Many dreams will take flight and futures will be shaped when the Under-19 World Cup begins here on Friday with rival teams looking to halt the dominance of record five-time champions India. The legacy of the Under-19 World Cup as a breeding ground for future cricketing stars is well established. The tournament has unearthed a bevy of Indian stars — Yuvraj Singh in 2000, Rohit Sharma in 2006, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja in 2008, Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan in 2016, Shubman Gill in 2018 — to name a few.

At the world level also, the tournament has produced players who went on to become legends of the game.

But at the same time, there have been many who have not been able to replicate the immense promise shown at the age group and they include the likes of Ravikant Shukla, Manish Pandey, Unmukt Chand, Yash Dhull, Manjot Kalra and Kamlesh Nagarkotti.

All eyes again would be on India, who will be led by Punjab’s Uday Saharan. They begin their campaign against neighbours Bangladesh in Group A on Saturday.

World Darts Championship: Luke Littler’s dreams ended by Luke Humphries in sensational final

Luke Littler defeated 7-4 by world No 1 Luke Humphries in final; Premier League Darts returns to Sky Sports on Thursday February 1 as Cardiff kicks off the 17-week extravaganza all the way through to the Play-Offs on Thursday May 23 at London’s O2

Humphries hits the winning darts to defeat Luke Littler 7-4 in the World Darts Championship final

Luke Littler’s World Darts Championship dreams were finally ended by world No 1 Luke Humphries in a sensational final at Alexandra Palace on Wednesday night.

Humphries fought back from 4-2 down to win five consecutive sets and win his maiden world title 7-4 to make it four major victories in a row following his success at the World Grand Prix, Grand Slam of Darts, and Players Championship Finals in recent months.

“I’ll draw a lot from this and this will be a moment that will never be forgotten,” Humphries told Sky Sports. “I don’t want to say that I’ve completed darts but everything that you want on the resume I’ve done now, so now it’s now about motivating yourself to do more and more.

Littler said: “It has been unbelievable. The one negative was I lost too many legs with my throw so Luke could break me.

“That was the only negative, I just couldn’t hold my own throw and I didn’t win. Every game has been good but that one has just really annoyed me, especially the three missed to keep it going.

“That’s what the crowd wanted but fair play to Luke, he deserves it.”

Humphries started the better by capitalising on a slow start from Littler to take the opening set 3-1 with a 99.2 average despite eight missed darts at doubles.

It didn’t take ‘The Nuke’ long to discover his best in the second set, coming from 2-1 down by producing two 12-dart legs with the aid of a spectacular 142 checkout and a ‘Shanghai’ 120 finish.

The third set also went the distance with ‘Cool Hand’ edging it from 2-0 down to regain the upper hand with a 116 checkout to take it, but the Warrington teenage sensation struck back to secure the fourth set 3-1 and restore parity with a 99 average and an impressive 47 per cent on the doubles.

It was 2-2 in sets and 9-9 in legs with nothing to separate the two players.

For the first time in the match, the player who started the set won it after nine break of throws in 22 legs, with World Youth Champion Littler going ahead for the first time in the match before wrapping up the fifth set, averaging a ton.

The new world No 1 found himself under pressure here as Littler made it nine legs from the last 11 to open up a two-set advantage at 4-2.

Humphries reeled in his second 170 finish in a matter of days in a seventh set which was full of carnage.

Littler responded with a third ton-plus finish of the final – a 122 checkout – which Wayne Mardle described as “spiteful, dirty, nasty!” in the commentary box, before Humphries survived a set dart before sealing it on double 14 to reduce the deficit.

And Humphries piled in a classy 121 checkout on the bull to make it back-to-back sets to get back on level terms with a 114.17 set average but it also coincided with Littler slightly dropping off.

The 28-year-old Newbury thrower threw back-to-back 108 checkouts to lead 2-0 in the ninth set and although the teenager battled back to level up, a 180 to start the set and a 36 checkout enabled Humphries to win the leg and set in 11 darts.

A relentless Humphries made it four sets on the spin as he took full control of the final to go within a set of the title, despite Littler reeling in a ‘Big Fish’ of his own.

However, it was ‘Cool Hand’ who got his hands on the Sid Waddell Trophy to become the 12th different PDC World Champion after pinning double 8 in the 11th set.

Talking about Littler, Humphries said: “I’m not just saying this because it will please everyone, but Luke has been an unbelievable talent.

“Not just about the dartboard, he has been fantastic with all the media that has come about with him and he took the defeat so well.

“He said go on and celebrate. You will never see another down-to-earth 16-year-old kid like him who is just something else.

“I really hope he’s in the Premier League because, if he don’t want to play in it fair enough, but I think he’d be a pleasure to play alongside this year.

“He’s one of the best players in the world, there is no doubt about that.”

Luke Littler reaches World Darts Championship final after beating Rob Cross at Alexandra Palace

Luke Littler, 16, moves one win away from Alexandra Palace glory after crushing Rob Cross 6-2 in semi-finals; Littler will face Luke Humphries in final; We’re back at 7.30pm on Wednesday for the World Darts Championship final – live on Sky Sports Darts

Last Updated: 03/01/24 12:15am


Luke Littler defeated 2018 champion Rob Cross to reach the World Darts Championship final

Teenager Luke Littler made it through to the World Darts Championship final after crushing Rob Cross to go within one match of a remarkable maiden title at Alexandra Palace.

Littler averaged 106.05, hitting 16 maximums and ton-plus finishes of 149, 142 and 132 en route to a magnificent 6-2 victory against 2018 winner Cross at the age of 16.

He will face another in-form player in Luke Humphries, who hit top gear to whitewash Scott Williams 6-0 in the second semi-final to become the new world No 1 and stretch his unbeaten run to 18 matches.

“No words! Crazy to think I’m in a World Championship final in my debut,” Littler told Sky Sports. “I was happy winning one game but I could go all the way!

“You’re playing Rob, he’s a world champion and won on debut. Rob told me ‘God bless, you’re a step away, do it’.

“I’ve just settled on the stage. It took me a few legs to settle in the game and once I found that rhythm I was good to go.”

Littler was greeted by the Warrington Wolves’ mascot during an electrifying walk-on, but it was Cross who stormed out of the blocks and edged a quality set in a deciding leg with a 108.6 average.

It was the first time Littler had lost the first set in the tournament.

The teenager recovered from 2-1 down in the next set and a crucial 74 checkout in the deciding leg saw him draw level with a 101 average and four 180s.

Cross, the 2018 champion, appeared flummoxed by Littler’s incredible accuracy on the treble 20 bed and it wasn’t long before the 16-year-old moved ahead by cracking in a stunning 142 checkout before hitting the front with a 101.6 average.

Littler opened the fourth set with an 11-darter and he then struck with a mammoth 149 on double 16 to move 2-1 up in legs.

‘Voltage’ levelled and he then hit six perfect darts in the next leg, but it was the world youth champion who extended his lead with a magnificent 11-darter to move 3-1 ahead averaging 103.8 with nine 180s and 65 per cent on the doubles.

Cross, who made a remarkable comeback from 4-0 down to beat Chris Dobey 5-4 in their quarter-final on Monday, pinned an unorthodox 138 checkout in the second leg of the fifth set.

Littler missed one set dart at tops to extend his lead, allowing former electrician Cross to pounce and close the gap to 3-2 in sets.

‘The Nuke’ wrapped up the sixth set 3-1 with a 107 average compared to Cross’ 91.58 to restore a two-set cushion with 14 maximums.

Littler had one foot in the final after closing out the seventh set by the same scoreline, averaging 110.55 for sets six and seven.

The teen star was showboating by now and he raised the roof with a 132 checkout by using the bullseye on his way to Wednesday’s final against three-time major champion Luke Humphries or Scott Williams.

Looking ahead to the final, Littler added: “I’ll do what I’ve been doing. In the morning, go for a ham and cheese omelette, then come here have a pizza and then practice. That’s what I’ve done every day.”

Littler got better the longer the match went on. In the last three sets (13 legs) he averaged 112.62

12x 180s

Humphries produced a statement victory against ‘Shaggy’ Williams with a 108.74 average, 14 180s, a breath-taking display on the doubles and a sensational six ton-plus finishes.

“It was amazing. I would never have imagined myself to be the world No 1. That is a special feeling. And to do it in style,” said a delighted Humphries.

“I’m really pleased with that performance. But, world No 1 can last for a couple months, World Champion is forever so I’ve got a really tough task tomorrow against Luke.”

Michael van Gerwen’s hopes of a fourth World Darts Championship title were dashed in stunning fashion by Scott Williams at the quarter-final stage on New Year’s Day.

Williams pulled off a sensational 5-3 scalp of Van Gerwen at Alexandra Palace, punishing 27 missed darts at doubles from the three-time champion to set up a meeting with Luke Humphries.

Williams came charging out of the blocks by winning the opening set in straight legs, but ‘Mighty Mike’ took out 81 for back-to-back 11-darters to close out the second set 3-1 with a set average of 116.71 despite missing 12 darts at double.

Van Gerwen took out a magnificent 121 checkout before pinning double 16 to seize the initiative in the third set.

However, the Dutchman threw in a stinker of a set, averaging just 78, and Williams railroaded it 3-0 to get back on level terms at 2-2.

Van Gerwen appeared to have fallen off a cliff when Lincolnshire showman Williams made it six legs on the spin to lead 3-2, but the three-time World Champion soon restored parity in three consecutive legs to stop the rot.

‘Shaggy’ punished more crucial mistakes from the world No 2 to seal the seventh set 3-1 and go within one of a sensational victory before taking the eighth 3-1 to secure a last-four meeting with either Luke Humphries or Dave Chisnall.

Williams said he probably should have beaten Van Gerwen a bit easier after knocking out the pre-tournament favourite

“I just knocked the best player in the world out,” Williams told Sky Sports.

“He wasn’t the Michael van Gerwen we’ve seen over the last couple of games but that’s not my problem.

“I hit the doubles and probably should have won it a little bit easier. I’m absolutely loving it up there. I love a crowd.”

Wayne Wardle was surprised at how 'erratic' Van Gerwen was during his loss

Wayne Mardle called Williams’ win a “massive shock”, but also admitted he did a “number” on the Dutch ace.

“Michael van Gerwen normally loses to someone who is a big hitter already, a world champion or a major champion,” ‘Hawaii 501’ said.

“Scott Williams did a number on him. He was there to clean up when he had to clean up and he held it together so well.

“Even Luke Littler and Rob Cross are giving it… ‘WHAT!?’ What an opportunity for everyone left in the tournament.”

Michael van Gerwen missed 30 doubles in his first three games. He missed 27 against Scott Williams

52.4 per cent (33/63) – First 3 games

Williams will take on Humphries in the semi-finals after ‘Cool Hand’ thrashed Dave Chisnall 5-1 with a 103.50 average, a dozen 180s, 40 per cent on the doubles and a high checkout of 164.

The World Grand Prix, Grand Slam of Darts and Players Championship winner made it 17 victories in a row to break new ground at Ally Pally.

“It felt strange to be the frontrunner for once,” said Humphries. “I have been used to a lot of comebacks for the last few days and it has just been nice to be me.

“It was nice to be in front and keep pushing hard and I didn’t relent. Chizzy played really well, he made it really tough for me.

“I haven’t been myself in the first couple of games. Tonight, we saw the form I have been showing in the last few majors.

“I played as well as I needed to.”

World Darts Championship: New Year’s Day Afternoon Results

Rob Cross 5-4 Chris Dobey
Luke Littler 5-1 Brendan Dolan

In the afternoon, Luke Littler’s amazing Alexandra Palace journey continued after he became the youngest semi-finalist ever after he beat Brendan Dolan 5-1 in the quarter-final.

‘The History Maker’ Dolan had beaten former World Champions Gerwyn Price and Gary Anderson but could not compete with Littler, who finished with an average of 101.93 to thrill his adoring fans inside Ally Pally.

“It feels unbelievable. I would never have thought I would have got to the semis on my debut year,” he said.

“Brendan was just another opponent in my way and I have brushed him aside and now I am into the semi-final.

“It’s going to take a lot to stop me, based on my performances so far. But it is about whatever Luke Littler turns up.

“I have got the ability to go all the way, if it’s not to be tomorrow night, it’s not to be.

“I know I have got a good chance and I have got a good feeling I could go all the way tomorrow.”

Littler believes he is one of the best in the game at board management and he's thinking about lifting the title

He will meet Rob Cross for a spot in the final after ‘Voltage’ looked dead and buried when he was 4-0 down after barely 45 minutes as Chris Dobey played one of the matches of his life.

However, the off-stage break worked wonders for Cross as the former electrician sparked into life.

He reeled off four sets of his own and then took out 130 to seal a remarkable win but he will have to improve if he is stop the Littler train.

“Everyone loves an underdog story,” he said. “As the public and people looking at the game, everyone loves an underdog story.

“I am not being rude, I am on his side, I love an underdog story.

“It took a bit of pressure off me winning it first time as well.

“He’s fantastic and he deserves all the luck in the world, he is a nice young boy. Tomorrow we play darts, though, and I have to go down to business.”

Cross came back from 4-0 down to Chris Dobey to complete a 'darting miracle!'

Littler will take on 2018 winner Cross in the first semi-final having already proven he is ready to compete on the biggest stage after taking out UK Open winner Andrew Gilding and his hero Raymond van Barneveld on his way to the last eight and he maintained that form against Dolan on New Year’s Day.

Cross produced one of the most memorable Alexandra Palace comebacks having gone 4-0 to Chris Dobey before reeling off four sets of his own and then taking out 130 to seal a famous win.

But he was back to his best in his quarter-final, dispatching Dave Chisnall 5-1.
