The first One-Day International between England and the Netherlands was a memorable one for the visitors, as they scored 498 runs in their 50-over quota, shattering all records and setting a new record for the greatest ODI total ever. It was a great outing for the batsmen, but it was particularly memorable for Liam Livingstone, who smashed the second-fastest ODI half-century, equaling Sanath Jayasuriya, Martin Guptil, and Kusal Perera's 17-ball fifty.
The English batters were in terrific form as Philip Salt, Dawid Malan, and Jos Buttler had reached the three-figure mark, scoring a century each.The Three Lions went all guns blazing in the first encounter of the three-match series against the Netherlands, posting a huge score of 498/4 in their 50-over quota.
While Salt and Malan walked off after scoring 122 and 125 runs, respectively, Jos Buttler remained unbeaten for a 70-ball 162* runs alongside Livingstone, who scored an undefeated 66*(22) to take England to the humungous total.
England broke their own record of the highest ODI total
The previous high score was set by the English hitters in a match against Australia in 2018. England scored 481 runs for the loss of six wickets to win by 242 runs against the great Australians. Even back then, they had beaten their own record of 444/3, which they had set against Pakistan in 2016 at the same location, Nottingham. England now holds the record for the top three highest team totals in the ODI format, thanks to a fantastic first innings performance against the Netherlands
