England Break ODI Record Against Netherlands

Jos Buttler's hit the second quickest ODI 150 as England set a new world record for the highest score in the format, but fell just short of 500, as they posted 498-4 against Netherlands.


Buttler finished on 162 runs from 70 balls, as England posted the largest ever limited overs score, thanks to an incredible display of shots.

The Lancashire batter was joined by teammates Phil Salt and Dawid Malan in making centuries, whilst Liam Livingstone also hit some huge shots on the way to a very quick 66 at the end of the innings.

There will be some annoyance still at missing out on the landmark of making 500, with captain Eoin Morgan out first ball and Jason Roy making one from seven balls at the start of the innings.

England travelled to Netherlands for the series this week without any of their Test playing team, as they prepare for the final match of the New Zealand series.

They didn't get off to the best start, with Roy out so soon in the innings, and wasting several balls, being bowled by cousin Shane Snater, but from there it was all about the batters.

Phil Salt made his first century for the national team, having only scored 104 runs in his first three appearances, hitting 14 fours on his way to 122.

Dawid Malan also contributed a century, as the former T20 world number one batter made 125 from 109 balls, but both men were outhit by Buttler.

The former Test wicketkeeper, who has lost his place to Ben Foakes in the longer format, was fresh from an excellent season in the IPL.

He returned to the national team with a brutal display of hitting to bring up triple figures in just 47 balls and, taking just 65 to make 150.
