PLAYER RATINGS: Openers set tone as England seal series win

The Cricketer runs the rule over the individual performances on both sides during the second one-day international



Vikram Singh (10): Fell early to Willey for a second successive game, giving England an early breakthrough 3

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

Tom Cooper (17; 1-25): Got in and was scoring at nearly a run a ball before walking across his stumps to be trapped in front by Carse; got through four handy overs of off-spin 4

Bas de Leede (34; 0-27): For the second time in this series, the allrounder looked fluent and played some strong shots, only to miscue Livingstone to Willey at mid-on when well set; expensive with the ball 4.5

Scott Edwards (78): Played beautifully and brought up his fifty by clobbering a straight six; unfortunate when Willey's throw from the deep left him millimetres short of his ground as he neared a hundred, but captained well 7.5

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

Logan van Beek (30; 0-26): Provided late impetus with a pair of sixes that took the Netherlands to a handy total, though Roy took him on from the start of England's innings; bowled nicely up top and towards the back-end as well 6

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

Shane Snater (17*; 0-26): Expensive with the ball but caught his cousin, Roy, and was enterprising at the end of the Dutch innings 3

Aryan Dutt (DNB; 2-55): Bowled nicely and deserved his rewards; cleaned up Salt as he advanced, had Roy caught by Snater and would have had Malan but for extra bounce that saved the left-hander on review 6

Vivian Kingma (DNB; 0-16): Only used for two overs with the new ball, but Roy was in the mood and he proved expensive 2

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

Phil Salt (77): Looks totally at home in international cricket and his fearless aggression makes him a natural fit in this England team; looked primed for successive hundreds until charging at Dutt and missing 7.5

Dawid Malan (36*): Played the situation with typical composure and was not out at the end despite a scare when he was initially given out lbw to Dutt's off-spin 6.5

Eoin Morgan (0): Another duck for the England captain, whose future in the ODI side is increasingly under threat; after a first-baller on Friday, he top-edged a slog-sweep to short third man 2

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

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

Jos Buttler (DNB): After the carnage of Friday, Buttler wasn't needed by England, who altered their batting order on the occasion of his 150th ODI 5

David Willey (DNB; 2-46): Two wickets and a runout for the allrounder, whose direct hit of Edwards might have cost the stand-in captain a hundred 6.5

Brydon Carse (DNB; 1-36): Bowled sharply as the solitary right-armer in England's touring party, having replaced Sam Curran 6

Adil Rashid (DNB; 2-50): Taken downtown a couple of times, but bowled nicely for the most part, and had an lbw decision overturned early on when England were threatening to run through the hosts 6

Reece Topley (DNB; 0-35): Wicketless but the most economical of England's bowlers; wouldn't be a surprise to see him rested for one of the uncapped left-armers in the final ODI 6
