Netherlands v England 2022

Marks out of 10: Player ratings for England after their 3-0 win against the Netherlands

by Wisden Staff 3 minute read

Following England’s T20I series win over the Netherlands at the picturesque VRA cricket ground in Amstelveen, here are our marks out of 10 for the visitors.

Phil Salt – 9/10

248 runs @ 82.66, SR 140.11

An excellent series for the powerful right-hander as he scored his maiden ODI century in the first match before following it up with a 70 and a 49, finishing the series as the joint leading run-scorer alongside Jos Buttler. Salt’s success will not result in him being an automatic starter, but in his attempt to be considered as the top three’s next cab-off-the-rank, he has done nothing wrong.


Jason Roy – 8/10

175 runs @ 87.50, SR 114.37

A series that saw Roy make his 100th ODI appearance for England encapsulated the openers career to this point. One low score, followed by a brutal 73 off 60, followed by an unbeaten century. An excellent outing for the experienced opener.

Dawid Malan – 7/10

161 runs @ 80.50, SR 100.00

A century in match one, followed up with a calm 36* to win the game in match two with only a last innings duck to take the shine off. Malan has been England’s Mr. Consistent in recent years, never letting them down when called upon and he did the same this week. The call between him and Salt for who will be the back-up to the full strength Roy, Bairstow, Root combination will be a tough one.

Eoin Morgan – 1/10

0 runs @ 0, SR: 0

His golden duck in the first ODI was excusable if unfortunate given he was trying to tee-off from ball one. But his seven-ball duck in the second ODI was all the more concerning for a player searching for form as Morgan was scratchy at best. Furthermore, he missed the third ODI with a groin complaint as concerns grow over his fitness as well as form.

Jos Buttler – 10/10

248 runs @ N/A, SR 185.07

Batted twice. Didn’t get out. Scored a record-breaking 162* in the first game and 86* in the second. What more could you ask for?

Liam Livingstone – 8/10

70 runs @ 70, SR 250.00; 2 wkts @ 34.00, Econ, 5.23

Livingstone furthered his reputation as the archetypal modern player as he blasted England’s fastest every half-century in the first ODI whilst bowling his spin in the second and third matches to good effect.

Moeen Ali – 6/10

42 runs, SR, 205; 3 wkts @ 29.00, Econ, 6.21

An unbeaten 42 was his only outing with the bat in the second ODI whilst his bowling was good if unspectacular. Overall, a successful outing for Ali who turned 35 during the trip.

Sam Curran – 5/10

2 wickets @ 40.50; Econ, 5.40

Curran’s return from injury continued and regardless of his performance, this was another successful step to full fitness. 15 overs bowled and two wickets picked up, Curran will be content with his trip.

Adil Rashid – 5/10

3 wickets @ 50; Econ, 5.17

Rashid was arguably under par given his own high standards but by no means a disastrous performance. Scott Edwards in particular played him well, whilst the Dutch overall looked to avoid taking too many risks against the leggie.

David Willey – 8/10

8 wkts @ 15.50; Econ, 4.70

The leading wicket-taker in the series, Willey’s international revival continued. He took eight wickets in three matches whilst no other bowler took more than three across the series.

Reece Topley – 5/10

2 wickets @ 40.5, Econ 4.5

A solid if unspectacular outing for Topley who over the last year has become one of England’s leading white-ball seamers. No powerplay wickets in either of his appearances this series prevents his rating from being higher, but overall he bowled well and was economical.

Brydon Carse – 6/10

3 wickets @ 28.33; Econ, 5.66

A strong showing from Carse who, at times, across his two matches hit 90mph on the speed gun. He mentioned how Morgan has given him absolute clarity in his role as the middle-overs enforcer and cited Liam Plunkett as a player who he wishes to emulate. A successful trip for the Durham seamer.

David Payne – 6/10

1 wicket @ 38; Econ 4.22

A deserved debut for Payne in the final ODI and he took his first international wicket in his final over much to the relief of all involved after he had earlier had an easy catch to midwicket go down after Liam Livingstone lost it in the sun.
