The third, and final, one day international between Netherlands and England gets under way on Wednesday morning (10am UK time).
England have already stormed into a 2-0 lead, winning the series, but they will be keen to finish in style and whitewash their Dutch opponents.
The first match ended in a record breaking 498 runs for England, setting their opponents a seemingly impossible task. It was one they weren’t able to come anywhere near, Netherlands reaching just 266 before being bowled out. The second match saw Netherlands win the toss and opt to bat first, giving England a target of 236 to claim victory. England surpassed that total, hitting 239 runs in 36 overs.

Match prediction: England to take the series 3-0
England have shown the best of themselves during this three match series, breaking the record for the highest 50 overs run total in a ODI with 498-1 and having Jos Buttler showcase his batting ability with 162 runs in the first match. There have been some problems though with Eoin Morgan facing just eight balls and being bowled out for a duck in both matches so far.
The gulf in class between the two sides has been evident though and the third match in the series could see another big score for the visitors, with the only thing really stopping that happening being if Netherlands win the toss and opt to bat first once again.
England are, once again, very heavy favourites and should enjoy another good batting day on a pitch that has been very kind to them over the past few days. Phil Salt will be looking for another big score having posted totals of 77 and 122 whilst Dawid Malan will also hope for a bit longer at the crease, having only scored 125 in the first match before being restricted to 36 in the second being England reached their total.
The win for England should be fairly academic but it just depends on the number that they could reach. 500 runs was agonisingly close for them less than a week ago, with the penultimate ball of the innings falling just two foot short of the boundary, and they will be keen to try and surpass that number and break their own record. That might only be stopped, however, by the flip of a coin.
