Dave Chisnall is to make his World Cup of Darts debut for reigning champions England at next month's tournament in Frankfurt as he partners Adrian Lewis.
Reigning champions England, who have won the title in four of the past five years, will be represented for a sixth time by Adrian Lewis, who will this year be partnered by world No 5 Dave Chisnall at the Eissporthalle in Frankfurt, Germany as 32 two-player nations compete for the title.
Chisnall recently edged above James Wade on the PDC Order of Merit, and was unbeaten in his final seven games of the Premier League as he narrowly missed out on the play-offs.
2015 finalists Scotland will be represented for a second time by Gary Anderson and Peter Wright, who reached the decider two years ago before losing out to England, and the pair - ranked second and third in the world - will be the top seeds.
Two-time winners Netherlands will be the No 3 seeds as World Champion Michael van Gerwen teams up once again with Raymond van Barneveld to continue the partnership which saw them claim the 2014 title and reach last year's final.
Welsh pair Gerwyn Price and Mark Webster team up for the second successive year as the No 4 seeds, with Australia's Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson to be the No 5 seeds.
Both Northern Ireland - represented by Daryl Gurney and Brendan Dolan - and Belgium, who see brothers Kim and Ronny Huybrechts team up, retain the same pairings which reached the 2016 semi-finals, while Austria's Mensur Suljovic and Rowby-John Rodriguez complete the seeded nations.
Brazil will make their World Cup of Darts debuts as Diogo Portela, the London-based player who competes on the PDC circuit, teams up with Alexandre Sattin, who won a qualifier in his homeland to secure a place in the event.
