England completed a clean sweep against the Netherlands as they put on a clinical performance to win the third and final ODI with eight wickets in hand at Amstelveen on Wednesday, 22nd June. David Willey was the star with the ball for England. Meanwhile, Jason Roy and Jos Buttler sealed an emphatic series win for the visitors chasing the Netherlands score of 244. The opener recorded his tenth ODI ton and made amends for his failure in the first ODI. Buttler finished things off in style with a massive six as he remained unbeaten on 86 off 64 deliveries.

The England team made a strong start to their chase as the opening pair of Phillip Salt and Jason Roy added 85 runs in just 58 balls for the first wicket. Salt was the aggressor in the partnership, as he scored a brisk 49 off 30 deliveries. The Dutch bowlers showed signs of a comeback with a two-wicket over from Paul van Meekeren as he dismissed Salt and Dawid Malan in the tenth over in the space of three balls.

But the pair of Roy and stand-in skipper Jos Buttler put the match beyond any doubts with an unbroken 163-run stand for the third wicket. The chase eventually proved to be a cakewalk for the visitors as they got over the line with almost 20 overs to spare and eight wickets in the shed.

David Willey’s brilliant second spell restricts the Netherlands

Earlier in the match, Netherlands had a wobbly start to their innings as they lost the opener, Vikramjit Singh, cheaply. Tom Cooper joined Max O’Dowd in the middle and steadied the ship for the Dutch before he was dismissed for 33 off 37 balls. Meanwhile, O’Dowd notched up his half-century and was looking good before being dismissed by Liam Livingstone.

Bas de Leede and skipper Scott Edwards continued their good form with the bat as the pair notched up their respective fifties and stitched up an 84-run stand for the fourth wicket. But the Netherlands team couldn’t finish strong as they lost their last six wickets for just 29 runs and finished with an underwhelming score of 244 runs on the board.

David Willey was the pick of the English bowlers as he accounted for four Dutch batters. Brydon Carse chipped in with two wickets. Meanwhile, debutant David Payne, Adil Rashid, and Liam Livingstone grabbed one wicket each.
