England breaks world record as Butler, Livingstone breaks batting figures
England men’s cricket team led by Jos Buttler David Malan and Philippe Salt’s hundreds set a world record as the team scored 498/4 in 50 overs vs Netherlands in the 1st ODI at VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen on 17 June (Friday) Make. , Netherlands won the toss and elected to bowl which had the opposite effect and players like Butler and Livingstone displayed reckless bowling from the home side. Despite losing Jason Roy in the second over of the day, England got off to a rousing start thanks to knocks from Salt and Malan. Both of them hit hundreds, while the show stealer was Jos Buttler, who smashed 162 runs in just 70 balls, which included 7 fours and 14 sixes. At one point he looked set to score his first double century in ODI cricket. However, with Malan and Eoin Morgan quickly falling for two wickets, Liam Livingstone came to the crease and hit a half-century. He played most of that and Butler didn’t get enough deliveries to reach his point.

On the way to 498/4, England’s batsmen broke many records. Here’s a look at them all.
– This is the first time in England’s ODI history that 3 of their batsmen have scored centuries in the same match – Phil Salt, David Malan and Jos Buttler. This feat has been achieved only twice in the first ODI and both by South Africa, who did vs WI and IND in 2015.
David Malan has become the second England player to score a ton in every international format. The first player to do so is Jos Buttler.
Jos Buttler has now scored the fastest, second fastest and third fastest century in ODIs for England.
46 balls – Jos Buttler vs Pakistan, 2015
47 balls – Jos Buttler vs Neath, 2022
50 balls – Jos Buttler vs Pakistan, 2019
– Liam Livingstone scored 32 runs in an over from Philippe Boisven, which is not the best over for England in ODIs. He broke Dimitri Mascarenhas’ 30-run record against India in 2007.
Liam Livingstone made the fastest ODI fifty for England in just 16 balls. He ended the innings with a score of 66 runs in 22 balls which included 6 sixes and fours each.
26 sixes were hit in England vs Netherlands which is another world record. Eoin Morgan & Co improved their number of 25 sixes against Afghanistan in Manchester in 2019
