continue to pursue the 500-run milestone in one-day international cricket. England were 488-4 with two balls remaining in their series opener against the Netherlands on Friday, surpassing their previous ODI world record of 481-6 against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2018. Liam Livingstone’s record-breaking 26th six ruined their hopes of reaching 500, but they still had to settle with an innings total of 266 for Liam Livingstone (66 not out off 22 balls) and Shane Snater.
Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 162 from 70 balls, including 14 sixes, was the highlight of England’s 498-4 total, which included the second-fastest ODI hundred (47 balls) and the second-fastest 150 (65 balls) by any player, trailing only AB de Villiers’ 64-ball effort for South Africa against West Indies. On Sunday, when the three-match series against the Netherlands begins, England may have another chance to reach 500 goals.
Buttler said: “We’ve come close [to 500] one time before this and the message in the team is to try to keep pushing boundaries and taking the team forward, to take the game on.
“Is it a matter of time before we make 500? I don’t know. We’ll keep trying to do it. It’s a tough thing to try to achieve and it will probably have to happen on a belting wicket at a small ground.
“I think the biggest thing, irrelevant of the score, is the mentality we are showing as a team. We keep trying to better that and be better as a team when we play. We know that stands us in good stead.”
