After scoring a record 498 runs in the first ODI, England defeated the Netherlands in the second match as well. In this way, the visitors now have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. There was no fanfare in this rain-battered match, but openers Phil Salt and Jason Roy definitely gave the team a six-wicket victory with their half-centuries. After winning the toss, Netherlands, batting first, put 235 runs on the scoreboard for the loss of seven wickets. In reply, the British hit the ground with the first six wickets from 29 balls.
At first the match started three hours late due to rain and wet outfield. With Peter Seelar announcing retirement due to a back injury, Scott Edwards was made the acting captain. Scott scored 78 runs in 73 balls in the match of 41 overs. England captain Eoin Morgan’s bat remained silent again. He got out for zero. Liam Livingstone also settled cheaply. Now the third match of the series will be played on June 22 at 2.30 pm Indian time.
