Netherlands vs England commentators 2022: A five-member commentary panel is calling Netherlands vs England ODIs.
England kick-started their first-ever bilateral series against Netherlands in a record-breaking fashion. Playing an ODI against the Dutch after as many as 11 years, England registered the highest-ever ODI score of 498/4 in 50 overs after being invited to bat first by home captain Pieter Seelaar. It is also the highest List A innings total surpassing Surrey’s 496/4 against Gloucestershire at The Oval 15 years ago.
Individual centuries by vice-captain Jos Buttler (162*) and top-order batters Dawid Malan (125) and Phil Salt (122) powered England to this world record in Amstelveen today. Batting at No. 6 with just over five overs remaining in the innings, batter Liam Livingstone also contributed with a hard-hitting 66* (22) comprising of six fours and sixes each at a strike rate of 200.
As far as the centurions are concerned, Buttler scored the second-fastest ODI century for an English batter hitting seven fours and 14 sixes at a strike rate of 231.42 today.
Buttler, who shared an 89-ball 184-run third-wicket partnership along with Malan, followed it with an unbeaten 32-ball 91-run stand alongside Livingstone. Buttler, 31, received an ideal foundation in the form of a 169-ball 222-run second-wicket partnership between Salt and Malan.
In what was a forgettable day for Netherlands’ bowlers, Seelaar was the pick of them with bowling figures of 9-0-83-2. New-ball bowler Logan van Beek and Shane Snater picked a wicket apiece at the VRA Ground on Friday.
