England, having been sent in by the hosts, shattered records by racking up 498/4, the highest ODI total ever which saw them better their own tally of 481/6 achieved against Australia in 2018. Philip Salt (122 off 93) and Dawid Malan (125 off 109) blew Netherlands to smithereens but they were both overshadowed by Jos Buttler, who walked out to bat after both of them and finished with a no-holds-barred 162* off 70 balls. Liam Livingstone went berserk at the death, smashing 66 off 22 balls, including 32 off an over by Philippe Boissevain.
