Author: Yuvi June 20, 2022 Netherlands vs England 2nd ODI: Roy, Phil Salt win the series by the visiting team

England beat the Netherlands by six wickets in the second match of their ODI series on Sunday (June 19), but their stupendous record-breaking opening win was much more than worth the effort. Any chance of breaking the ODI batting record set on Friday, when they registered a 498-4 win in a 232-run win, the Dutch won the toss and batted first. After a rain-delayed start in Amstelveen, the hosts posted 235-7 in their 41 overs with Tonga-born Scott Edwards scoring 78 off 73 balls to the delight of home fans.

England were on their way to victory when Jason Roy (73) and Phil Salt (77) put on a 139-run stand for the opening wicket. But both were removed by Aryan Dutt, while England captain Eoin Morgan went for a duck for the second time in three days and was bowled by Tim Pringle for four by Liam Livingstone.

But England were never in any real danger and David Malan and Moeen Ali saw the visiting team at home with 29 balls to spare. On Friday, Jos Buttler, Malan and Salt all scored centuries while Livingstone scored England’s fastest ODI half-century (17 balls) as they surpassed their previous record of 481 against Australia in 2018.

Meanwhile, England batsmen Jason Roy and Jos Buttler have now entered their 100th and 150th ODIs respectively. Both the batsmen reached the landmark in the second ODI of the three-match series against the Netherlands at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen on Sunday.
