In Amstelveen, Phil Salt, Dawid Malan, and Jos Butler unleashed havoc by smashing centuries each to help England achieve the milestone of scoring the highest team total in ODIs.

England broke their own record of 481, which they set against Australia in Nottingham in June 2018.

Butler top-scored for England as he smashed a blistering 70-ball 162, while Salt and Malan scored 122 and 125, respectively.

Meanwhile, Liam Livingstone also played his part and added to the hosts’ misery with the fastest 50 in England’s ODI history off just 17 balls — the joint second-fastest of all time, to help his side reach 498.
