England Set a Record of 498 Runs, Highest ODI Total in the History of Cricket
England made a name for themselves in ODI cricket as England set a new record for the highest team total 498 runs in ODI cricket. The previous two records were also held by England, who scored 444 for 3 against Pakistan in Nottingham in August 2016 and again in June 2016, they scored 471 for 6 against Australia in Nottingham. Once again, England broke their own record.
The England team is now the Netherlands to play a three-match ODI series. England batted first in the first ODI of the series today (June 17) at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen before losing the toss to the Netherlands and scored 498 for four.
England lost the first wicket by just 1 run in the first over of the match against the Netherlands. Jason Roy went back with that 1 run and was bowled by Shane Snyter. Then the destruction of England began.
Phil Salt and David Malan put on 222 for the second wicket. Both of them met before the century. Salt played a stormy innings of 122 off 93 balls with 14 fours and 3 sixes. Malan made 125 off 109 balls with 9 fours and 3 sixes.
In the 30th over, Salt returned the ball for Logan van Beek with 223 runs, but Malan remained steadfast at the other end. In the third wicket, these two added 164 runs from just 90 balls. In the 45th over, Dutch pacer Peter Seeler returned two balls in a row to Malan and England captain Eoin Morgan.
Butler then took the team to new heights by playing a career-best 182-run innings in ODIs by turning the bat into an open sword. He hit 6 fours and 14 double sixes in this unforgettable innings with just 60 balls.
They also had the previous record. England scored 461 runs for 7 wickets at Trent Bridge in 2016 against Australia. Which was the world record for the highest team total in ODIs so far. After losing the toss, England scored 498 runs in 50 overs. Only 4 wickets.
Even before this, England had scored the highest run. They lost 6 wickets and scored 461 runs in 2016 against Australia in Nottinghamshire. What exactly happened? Did anyone tell England that Amstelvin had a six-hit competition? 26 sixes, 36 fours.
Meanwhile, three English batsmen Joss Butler, David Malan and Phil Salt scored centuries in the match. Butler was out for 125 and Salt for 122. Butler, on the other hand, was unbeaten on 182 off 60 balls. Livingstone was unbeaten on 66 off 22 balls.
