The PDC's non-televised tour events planned for April have now been postponed.

Krzysztof Ratajski claimed his seventh PDC title at Players Championship 4 in Wigan on Sunday, defeating Ian White 8-7 in a thrilling final.

Ratajski looked assured of victory as he led 7-6 and left 40 for the title, only for White to fire in a match-saving 155 checkout to force a deciding leg.

With White throwing for the match, visits of 145 and 134 helped Ratajski on his way to winning the last-leg shootout which he finished on double eight.

Ratajski averaged 104.5 in his last 16 win over Nick Kenny, before producing averages of 106.5 and 103.1 in victories over Gabriel Clemens and Danny Noppert to reach the final.

Since picking up his maiden ProTour title in 2018, the Polish number one has established himself among the sport's elite since and is now up to a career-high 18th on the PDC Order of Merit.

"When Ian took out 155 it was a terrible moment for me, it made it really hard," Ratajski explained.

"This tournament was sometimes lucky for me, I won a few games 6-5 and I survived match darts twice.

"But then I played very well with averages over 100 and I feel very comfortable with the new darts I am playing with.

"I hope this will be my best season. Last season was brilliant and I hope this one will be even better."

The fourth of 30 Players Championship events in 2020 also saw Dutch youngster Maik Kuivenhoven reach his second ProTour quarter-final, having reached his first earlier in February.
