England beat an attack by the Netherlands on Sunday to defeat the hosts by six wickets in the 2nd World Cup a day at the VRA cricket ground outside Amsterdam. The Netherlands won the bout and selected from the bat, setting Eoin Morgan’s men in a 236-7 victory at 41 overs. Last night delayed the start of the game with authorities waiting for the cold patches to dry next to bat friendly ads and on the outside.
When he won the bat for England, Phil Salt scored 77 goals from 54 balls before falling to Dutch youngster Aryan Dutt who also won the trophy of his team-mate Jason Roy.
Roy, who scored a single run in England’s record total of 498 on Friday, redeemed himself by beating 73 off 60 balls.
For the Dutch, newly-minted leader Scott Edwards scored an impressive 78 before finishing.
Victory by world champions gave them an unbeaten 2-0 lead in the series, with the final game to be played at the same venue on Thursday.
