James drew 6-6 with Stephen Bunting in Birmingham last night but a point wasn’t enough for either player in the end as other results didn’t go the right way.
James started well by taking the opening leg the pair then traded leg, James broke the Bunting throw for the first time in leg 5 but the former world champion broke straight back. Both were then very strong on their own throws as the legs kept going with throw as James finished 62 to lead lead 6-5 and guarantee a point but then missed 3 darts to win allowing Stephen the chance to checkout 120 to grab a point which he took.
