England and Netherlands are currently playing against each other in the first ODI of the three-match series at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen. The Netherlands won the toss and opted to bowl first and they got the breakthrough in the form of Jason Roy. It was Shane Snater who removed him in the second over of the game as well.
It was a pitched up and a bit too full delivery which came inwards from off. Jason Roy tried to drive but the bat turned in his hands as he got an inside edge and the ball hit the stumps. Surprisingly, the bowler is the cousin of Jason Roy. As far as the game is concerned, England steadied the ship soon after as Philip Salt (122) and Dawid Malan (103*) stitched a 222-run stand as well.

Ahead of the game, at the toss, Eoin Morgan said: “We would have chased as well. We have a lot of talented players at home who have performed well in the Hundred and the County. Our strength has been great, we are looking towards the 2023 World Cup. Mott (Matthew) is a guy who comes with a lot of clarity and tells us exactly what he wants.”
Pieter Seelaar said at the toss: “We are going to have a bowl, it looks like a nice wicket from what we’ve seen in the West Indies series. Our death batting and the way we play spin we are looking to make improvements. It’s awesome to have a full ODI series, 100% we are looking to upset.”
