Luke Littler REACTION as teen sensation beats Rob Cross to set up Luke Humphries final | Other | Sport

Luke Littler has reiterated that he only wanted to win his first-round match at this year’s World Darts Championship, following his semi-final demolition of Rob Cross.

16-year-old Littler beat the 2018 world champion 6-2 to punch his ticket to the final on his debut.

“No words,” he said. “It’s crazy to even think I’m in a world final on my debut. I was happy winning one game but I could go all the way.

“It’s not [easy]. Rob is a world champion, he won on debut same as me. He said ‘God bless, I respect you, do it.’ I wanted to win my first-round game, that was it.

“I’ve just settled on that stage. It takes me a few legs to settle but once I’ve found that rhythm, I’m good to go. There’s no more development tour, I’m just happy to be in the top 32 and I could go even higher.”
