England now boast of top three totals in ODIs

England broke their own world record for the top score in ODI cricket after racking up 498-4 against Netherlands during a run-fest in Amstelveen. Jos Buttler (162 not out of 70 balls), Dawid Malan (125 off 109) and Phil Salt (122 off 93) each scored at a fair clip to bring up centuries as England bettered the 481-6 they had piled on against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2018.

Livingstone crunched the last ball for six, though, as England notched up the highest score in any List A game – international or domestic – by overhauling Surrey's 496-4 against Gloucestershire at The Kia Oval in 2007.
