In the three-match ODI series against the Netherlands, Jos Buttler has been outstanding. Buttler has once again demonstrated with his brilliant hitting why he is regarded as one of the best white-ball batsmen in the world.
With a total of 248 runs scored, Buttler ends the series as the series’ joint-highest run-scorer alongside Phil Salt. Buttler scored a brilliant 162 off just 70 balls in the opening ODI, the second-fastest ODI hundred and second-fastest 150 in ODI history for England.
Buttler did not bat in the second ODI, but he finished the series in a great way by leading England to victory in the third ODI with a score of 86 off 64 balls.
Jos Buttler hits an outrageous six
Buttler was once again a nightmare for the opposition pace bowlers as he was playing them easily. In the third One-Day International against the Netherlands on Wednesday in Amstelveen, the acting England captain hit a delivery that landed outside the strip over the bleachers for a six.
Netherlands bowler Van Meekeren was under pressure after being hit for 12 runs off of his first four deliveries, and he appeared to try to trick Buttler with a slower ball bouncer. The ball, however, came out completely incorrectly, looped down the leg side, and bounced twice. Buttler swiftly moved over and cleared it into the stands.
Even worse, because it bounced twice, it was deemed to be a no ball, and Buttler immediately smashed the ensuing free hit down the field for another six.
At the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen, England with their win whitewashed the Netherlands 3-0. One ball into their 31st over of chasing 245, the visitors successfully completed their task, winning by eight wickets.
With 125 points from 18 games, the defending champions have risen to the top of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League standings.
