Jos Buttler has said England will continue to aim for the 500 mark in One-Day International cricket after falling just two points short of that mark in a devastating performance against the Netherlands.

Having beaten their previous ODI world record of 481-6, set against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2018, England were 488-4 with two balls remaining against the Dutch in Friday’s series opener. .

However, their hopes of reaching 500 were dashed with Liam Livingstone (66no of 22) only able to hit Shane Snater’s next delivery for four before closing the innings with his team’s 26th six, another record .

England’s stunning tally of 498-4 was headlined by Buttler’s 162 not on just 70 balls, during which he hit 14 sixes, hitting his country’s second fastest ODI hundred (47 balls) and blasted the second-fastest 150 (65 balls) by any player, behind only AB De Villiers’ 64-ball effort for South Africa against the West Indies in 2015.

England could have another chance to push for 500 when the three-game series against the Netherlands continues on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Cricket from 9.50am and on Sky Sports Main Event from 10am.

Buttler: We will continue to push the boundaries

Buttler said: “We got closer [to 500] once before that and the message in the team is to try to keep pushing the limits and to keep the team going, to keep the game going.

“Is it a matter of time before we do 500? I do not know. We will continue to try to do so. This is a difficult thing to achieve and it will probably have to happen on a belt wicket on a small pitch.

“I think the most important thing, unrelated to the score, is the mentality that we show as a team. We keep trying to improve on that and be better as a team when we play. We know this is very helpful to us. »

England won the opener of the ODI by 232 runs after clearing the Netherlands for 266 in 49.4 overs, giving new white ball head coach Matthew Mott a winning start to his tenure.

Buttler, whose cent was his 10th for England in ODI cricket, added: “Obviously any time you manage to play like that as a team it’s fantastic.

“I’ve said many times that it’s the most fun environment I’ve ever played in, so it’s great to be back, great to be on a normal tour and not be on the road. worry about bubbles and that sort of thing. »

– England’s tally – in which Dawid Malan and Phil Salt also scored centuries – surpassed the previous ODI record of 481-6 which they themselves looted against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2018

– It was also the highest List A total ever, beating Surrey 496-4 against Gloucestershire at the Kia Oval in 2007

– England’s 26 sixes broke the previous record of 25 they broke against Afghanistan at the 2019 World Cup

– Jos Buttler’s century of 47 balls was the second fastest for England in ODI cricket – one ball shy of his own record, set against Pakistan in Dubai in 2015

– Liam Livingstone 17 balls fifty was one ball away from AB de Villiers ODI record of 16 balls

– The 32 runs Livingstone snatched from Dutch batsman Philippe Boissevain in the 46th (four sixes and two to four) made it England’s most productive ever in ODI cricket

– England had three Centurions in an ODI leg for the first time, with Buttler, Malan and Salt hitting triple figures

– The only other team to achieve this is South Africa, who saw Hashim Amla, Rilee Rossouw and AB de Villiers hit hundreds against the West Indies in Johannesburg in January 2015, before De Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis did the same against India in Bombay in October 2015.
