Stephen Bunting (Kieran Cleeves/PDC)

The 2023/24 Paddy Power World Darts Championship has featured 64 matches before the Christmas break - here we look at the top stats from the sport's showpiece event so far.

The first and second rounds have been held across nine days from December 15-23 - with 11 of the 32 seeds already crashing out in a dramatic start to the tournament.

While the sport's biggest names continue to battle it out for the coveted Sid Waddell Trophy, the remaining 32 players are also aiming to lift the Ballon d'Art - created by title sponsors Paddy Power.

The award is part of THE BIG 180 Campaign, which will see Paddy Power donate £1,000 to Prostate Cancer UK for every maximum scored during the 2023/24 World Championship.

Hong Kong's Man Lok Leung currently tops the maximum tally after landing 15 180s across his opening two matches, including 11 in his opening round win over Gian van Veen.

Meanwhile, Luke Littler is the player with the most 180s who is still remaining in the tournament, after landing 12 in his wins over Christian Kist and Andrew Gilding.
