Buttler, Malan & Salt smash hundred as England thrash Netherlands by 232 runs in 1st ODI

England, on Friday, June 17, defeated the Netherlands by 232 runs in the opening game of the three-match ODI series at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen.

Records tumbled on the day after the Three Lions racked up a gigantic score of 498/4. The Brits didn’t make the greatest of starts as fast bowler Shane Snater accounted for his cousin Jason Roy’s wicket in the second over.

From there on, the Three Lions didn’t look back and took the Dutch bowlers to the cleaners. Dawid Malan and Phil Salt laid the platform with a 222-run stand for the opening wicket. Both batters went on to score centuries, but it was Jos Buttler who stole the limelight.

Buttler went bonkers to score the second fastest ODI century by an English batter off 47 balls. Thereafter, he smashed an unbeaten 70-ball 162 with the help of seven fours and as many as 14 sixes.

Liam Livingstone didn’t die wondering either as he clobbered a 22-ball 66 with six fours and as many sixes. On the back of their knocks, England registered the highest-ever ODI score, combining men’s and women’s cricket.

They broke the record set by New Zealand Women, who scored 491 against Ireland Women back in 2018. The Three Lions also broke a 15-year-old record for the highest List A team score.

Max O’Dowd and Scott Edwards scored half-centuries, but they didn’t get much support from others in the Netherlands’ run-chase. Edwards top-scored for the Dutch team with a gutsy 56-ball 72, laced with five fours and a six.

The Netherlands were eventually shot out for 266 in 49.4 overs. Moeen Ali was the pick of the English bowlers with three wickets. David Willey, Reece Topley and Sam Curran picked up two wickets apiece.
