It was a damp start to the day for the second of three ODIs that make up this CWC Super League series between Netherlands and England at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen.

Overnight rain had got under the covers and needed to be dried before play could commence. The match was reduced to a 41 over contest.

There were three changes for the Dutch with Tim Pringle (son of former New Zealand international Chris and making his ODI debut) Teja Nidamanuru and Vivian Kingma coming in for Phillipe Boissevain, Musa Ahmed and Pieter Seelaar, the latter of whom had been struggling with a back injury and would announce his retirement from international cricket during the match.

Stand-in captain Scott Edwards won the toss and chose to bat first. Runs were hard to come by until the skipper came out to join Bas de Leede. The pair put on 61 for the fourth wicket before de Leede was out for 34.

This was followed by a 73 run partnership for the fifth wicket with Teja Nidamanuru and Edwards was eventually out for 78, scored from 73 balls. A late innings cameo of 30 by Logan van Beek helped the Dutch post 235-7 from their 41 overs.

The England inning started with Jason Roy and Phil Salt looking in imperious form again, scoring 139 before Roy was out for 73. Salt followed six overs later for 77 and was followed soon afterwards by another duck for Eoin Morgan and Liam Livingstone being bowled by a gem of a delivery by Tim Pringle and England went from 168-1 to 177-4 in the space of three overs.

They survived that scare thanks to an unbroken partnership of 64 between Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali. Malan finished on 36 whilst Ali scored 42 from 40 balls to help secure the six wicket win.

The teams will meet in the final ODI on Wednesday.
