Gary Anderson (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Gary Anderson has withdrawn from the World Series of Darts Finals and will also not compete in the PDC Autumn Series.

The two-time World Champion was set to be amongst the 24-player field for this month's World Series of Darts Finals in Salzburg, but has withdrawn from the event.

The Scot has also opted not to play in the PDC Autumn Series of five one-day Players Championships in Niedernhausen from September 12-16.

Anderson will be replaced for the World Series of Darts Finals by Krzysztof Ratajski, who is the highest-placed player from the PDC Order of Merit not currently in the event, with James Wade stepping up to become a seed.

A final four places in the tournament will be confirmed at the Tour Card Holder Qualifier in Niedernhausen on Friday September 11.

Coverage will be broadcast on ITV4 in the UK, on PDCTV for Rest of the World Subscribers and through the PDC's worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and RTL7.
