Highlights of the second ODI match in Amstelveen as England beat the Netherlands by six wickets to claim a streak win

England achieved a string win over the Netherlands as they secured a win by six wickets in their second one-day international match in Amstelveen.

In a game that was reduced to 41 widths per team after heavy rain all night, the home side held 235-7 even though substitute captain Scott Edwards (78 of 73 balls) scored the second half of the series.

After England’s world record 498 from the same spot on Friday, the 236th was never likely to challenge, and despite the brief mid-half wobbles of the Tourists’ victory, 29 balls were confirmed.

Jason Roy was delighted to secure this victory in his 100th England game against the Netherlands.

  • Netherlands 235-7 – Edwards (78 of 73), Willie (2-46), Rashid (2-50)
  • England 239-4 – Salt (77 of 54), Roy (73 of 60), Ali (42 of 40); dot (2-55)

Half a century of Jason Roy (73 of 60) – in the 100 ODI – and Phil Salt (77 of 54) in the opening position of 139 broke the back of the chase and after their fall was left to David Malan (36 no out of 50) and Muin Ali (42 no) out of 40) to finish the task.

England now aim to complete a 3-0 sweep of the series on the same ground on Wednesday.

Four inspections were required on the pitch before the referees were finally convinced that the surface was fit to play, and after winning the coin lottery, Holland opted to pay first.

They soon ran into wicket problems with David Wylie (2-46), Adil Rashid (2-50) and Brydon Kars (1-36) reducing the host to 36-3 in 10th place.

It could have been even worse at the end of the next stage as Edwards, after successfully reversing lbw’s decision against Rashid, should have been exhausted for one fast track.

It was still a long way from home as Joss Butler reclaimed Roy’s throw, but somehow the England wicket-keeper, who was playing number 150 in the ODI, misjudged him because he was about to dislodge the guarantees and Edwards was going home.

A partnership of 61 ensued between Edwards and Bass de Lied (34), but it was relatively slow and the latter set off to try to get things done, sending the ball to Willie halfway to Liam Livingston (1-28).

Edwards and Teja Nidamanoro had more success increasing the scoring in 73rd place for the fifth wicket before Willy both counted.

Nidamanoro (28 of 30) cleared with a full swing delivery and Edwards was just short of home after Willie’s direct hit with a throw from the edge of the 30-yard circuit.

Rashid beat newcomer Tim Pringle (0) and despite some strong late shots from Logan van Beek (30 points from 36) and Shane Sinatter (17 not out of 10), Holland’s total looked well below par.

Roy sets the style of stalking in England

The point was reached by Roy in the first set of the chase as he advanced forward and smashed Van Beek through the covers four times.

The tone was set and England never looked back. Roy scored most of the early runs and quickly raised his racket after winning the 50th match in the ODI, in his historic match.

After a slower start, Salt was quick in pursuit of it, and the opening duo’s efforts meant the question was how fast – not whether – England would finish the race.

Salt’s half century, the second of his nascent ODI career to accompany his first century in the opening series, went off 37 balls, but Holland were determined to make life as difficult as possible for England.

They had a hole when Roy clipped the ball to the short third man trying to hit Aryan Dott (2-55) down the side of the leg.

Salt and Malan pushed England to move comfortably, but the former then skipped one and was kicked by Dutt, the first of only three wickets for nine runs in just three runs as the Dutch spinners were making the most of the deck used.

Captain Eoin Morgan’s poor level continued when he went for a seven-ball duck and Livingston was brought down by a Pringle ripper (1-51) – the first memorable ODI win for the left wheel.

Dutt thought he got third soon after when he passed Malan and hit him on the front pillow. The referee raised his finger, but Malan saw him again and it turned out that he was just going.

From there though, Malan and Ali made sure there would be no more worries, as they quietly went through the required runs for a while before speeding towards the finish line.

Ali Pringle nailed it for six straight scores, then tied with four of the next score. He would have assumed his job was done, but Malan played a little girl and it was up to Ali to win the first ball on the next.
