The Netherlands may have had the services of Paul van Meekeren and Fred Klaassen for the final ODI of this CWC Super League series, but that didn’t stop another convincing win for the tourists.

England won the toss and put the hosts into bat with Vikramjit Singh falling early on. Tom Cooper and Max O’Dowd put on 72 for the second wicket to steady things, with Cooper the man out for 33. O’Dowd was the next man out shortly after bringing up his 50 and without adding further to that score.

The fourth wicket pair of Bas de Leede and Scott Edwards put on 84 before de Leede was out for 56, whilst Scott Edwards continued his excellent series with another score over 50, this time reaching 64 before being becoming the maiden ODI wicket for England debutant David Payne.

The bottom half of the Dutch batting line-up offered little resistance and the Dutch were bowled out for 244, David Wiley taking 4-36.

England started their reply with an 85 run partnership between Jason Roy and Phil Salt that ended when Paul van Meekeren bowled Salt for 49. He also bowled Dawid Malan for a second ball duck, but that brace of wickets served as little more than a speed bump on the road to a rapid chase.

There were no more wickets with Roy and stand-in skipper Jos Buttler putting on 163 to secure the eight wicket win. Roy scored 101 with Buttler scoring 86.

In his post-match interview after winning the player of the match award, Jason Roy suggested that England “should make a habit of coming here”. These are words that will be warmly received at the KNCB, but the end of the CWC Super League means that England are no longer required to. In an ever-busier calendar, they may never come again.
