PLAYER EVALUATIONS: Openers set the tone as England seal victory

The cricketer enforces the individual performance rule for both sides on the second day international


Vikram Singh (10): Fell early against Willey for a second game in a row, giving England an early breakthrough 3

Max O’Dowd (7): Unable to resume his performance in the first ODI, with the early introduction of Rashid for the right-hander, who played the leg spinner so well on Friday 3

Tom Cooper (17; 1-25): Came in and scored at nearly a run a ball before crossing his stumps to be trapped in front by Carse; went through four practical off-turn overs 4

Leede bottom (34; 0-27): For the second time in this series, the versatile player looked fluid and played good shots, only to trump Livingstone to Willey midway when well set; dear with the ball 4.5

Scott Edwards (78): Played beautifully and raised his fifty by hitting a straight six; unhappy when Willey’s throw from deep left him millimeters off his floor as he neared a hundred, but well captain 7.5

Teja Nidamanuru (28; 0-8): Provided excellent support for Edwards in an enterprising partnership, before being completely castled by an inswinger from Willey 5

Logan van Beek (30; 0-26): Provided a late impetus with a pair of sixes that took the Netherlands to a practical total, although Roy took it early in England’s innings; nicely rolled up and back too 6

Tim Pringle (0; 1-51): Not the first to misinterpret Rashid’s googly, but he got revenge with one of the balls of the day to dismiss Livingstone 5

Shane Snater (17*; 0-26): Expensive with the ball but caught up to his cousin Roy and looked enterprising late in the Dutch innings 3

Aryan Dutt (DNB; 2-55): Has performed well and earned its awards; cleared Salt as he advanced, got Roy caught by Snater and would have had Malan but for an extra rebound which saved the southpaw on review 6

Vivian Kingma (DNB; 0-16): Used only for two overs with the new ball, but Roy was in the mood and it proved costly 2

Jason Roy (73): Seemed determined to make amends for his early dismissal on Friday and played with typical authority until offering a catch to his cousin Snater, who pitched him into the first ODI 7.5

Phil Salt (77): He looks totally at home in international cricket and his fearless aggression makes him a natural fit for this England team; looked set for successive hundreds until he charged Dutt and missed 7.5

Dawid Malan (36*): Played the situation with typical composure and wasn’t knocked out in the end despite getting a scare when initially given lbw to Dutt’s off-spin 6.5

Eoin Morgan (0): Another duck for the England captain, whose future in the ODI team is increasingly in jeopardy; after a first ball on Friday, he dominated a slog sweep to shorten the third man 2

Liam Livingstone (4; 1-28): Claimed the wicket of de Leede after not bowling on Friday but was cleared by a fine delivery from Pringle that went over his outside edge 4

Moen Ali (42*; 0-30): Expensive with the ball but played a good hand in England’s pursuit after three quick wickets fell 6

Jos Buttler (DNB): After Friday’s carnage, Buttler didn’t need England, who changed their batting order on their 150th ODI. 5

David Willey (DNB; 2-46): Two wickets and a runout for the all-rounder, whose direct hit from Edwards could have cost the alternate captain a hundred cents 6.5

Brydon Carse (DNB; 1-36): Turned abruptly as England tour’s lone right-hand man, after replacing Sam Curran 6

Adil Rachid (DNB; 2-50): Caught downtown a few times but played well for the most part, and an lbw call was overturned early when England threatened to run through the hosts 6

Reece Topley (DNB; 0-35): Without a wicket but the most economical of English bowlers; wouldn’t be a surprise to see him rest for one of the uncapped left arms in the final ODI 6
