England Set a Record of 498 Runs, Highest ODI Total in the History of Cricket
England made their mark in ODI cricket by setting a new record for the highest team total in ODI cricket with 498 runs. The previous two records were both held by England, which scored 444 against Pakistan in Nottingham in August 2016 and 471 against Australia in Nottingham in June 2016. England once again shattered its own record.
The England cricket team will now face the Netherlands in a three-match ODI series. England batted first in the first ODI of the series on June 17 at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen, scoring 498 for four after losing the toss to the Netherlands.
In the first over of the match against the Netherlands, England lost their first wicket by only 1 run. Shane Slyter bowled Jason Roy when he returned with one run and was dismissed by the delivery. Then started the ruin of England.
The second-wicket partnership between Phil Salt and David Malan was worth 222. They met before to the turn of the century. Salt scored 122 runs off 93 balls while hitting 14 fours and three sixes. Malan scored 125 from 109 deliveries, including 9 fours and 3 sixes.
Salt returned the ball to Logan van Beek with 223 runs scored in the 30th over, but Malan stayed solid at the other end. These two scored 164 runs off of only 90 balls at the third wicket. In the 45th over, Dutch pacer Peter Seeler returned two consecutive balls to Eoin Morgan and Malan.
Butler then elevated the squad to new heights by scoring a career-high 182 runs in one-day internationals by using the bat like a sword. With only 60 balls, he blasted six fours and fourteen sixes throughout this amazing innings.
In addition, they had the previous record. England scored 461 runs with seven wickets against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2016. Which was the record for the highest team total in ODIs up until that point. In 50 overs, England scored 498 runs after losing the toss. Just four wickets.
Prior to this, England had scored the most runs. In 2016, they scored 461 runs and lost six wickets against Australia in Nottinghamshire. What precisely occurred? Did someone inform England that Amstelvin was competing in a six-hit contest? 26 sixes, 36 fours.
Three English batsmen, namely Joss Butler, David Malan, and Phil Salt, achieved century throughout the match. Salt was out for 122 while Butler was out for 125. Butler, on the contrary, was undefeated with 182 runs off 60 balls. Livingstone was still undefeated with 66 after 22 balls.
