England not satisfied with 500

19 June, 2022

Jos Buttler says England will keep chasing the magical target of 500 runs in one-day internationals after a record-breaking victory over the Netherlands.

England posted a staggering 498-4 against the Dutch at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen, bettering the 481-6 they made against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2018, as well as surpassing the List A record of 496-4, scored by Surrey in 2007.

It was spearheaded by wicketkeeper Buttler's unbeaten 162 off 70 balls, which included 14 sixes and seven fours.

Buttler said: "We've come close one time before this and the message in the team is to try to keep pushing boundaries and taking the team forward."
