GARY Anderson is closing in on a return to the world’s top 20 following his European Darts Grand Prix triumph on Sunday. There is plenty of movement and stories within the latest rankings.

Anderson returned to winning ways on the big stage in Sindelfingen, defeating Ross Smith 8-6 to clinch his second European Tour title – over a decade on from his maiden success in February 2014.

The two-time World Champion also saw off Christian Perez, Gerwyn Price, Josh Rock and reigning champion Rob Cross on his way to glory at the Glaspalast, before denying Smith to scoop the £30,000 top prize.

Anderson’s second ranking title of 2024 saw him rise three places to 21st on the PDC Order of Merit, at the expense of James Wade and German duo Martin Schindler and Gabriel Clemens. Ricardo Pietreczko ensures that three German players remain within the top 32

Ross Smith moved above Joe Cullen to 15th after featuring in his maiden European Tour final, while Chris Dobey climbed to a career-high of 13th, despite his second-round defeat to Jonny Clayton in Sindelfingen.

At the lower end of the table Richard Veenstra is headed into the top 60 and will be looking to retain his tour card by right. Ian White still retains 64th place and will not give up easy.

The PDC Order of Merit comprises prize money won over a two-year period by players in PDC ranking events – click here to view the full PDC Order of Merit.

The PDC Order of Merit will next be open to change this weekend, as the Austrian Darts Open (ET5) takes place in Graz from April 26-28 – watch live on PDCTV.
