ENG won by 8 wickets
 
That will be all for today. England have completed a whitewash over the Netherlands. Considering how their red-ball side has been doing against New Zealand, this summer promises to bring much more joy to their fans in comparison to the previous one. It's time to say goodbye now. This is Raghav and Pratyush signing off. Tune in to Sportskeeda for more live cricket action.
Jos Buttler, England Captain and the Player of the Series: Yeah, I am happy. Feeling good about my own form, the plan is to just keep going. Happy with how the team has performed. We have a big summer ahead of us and having such a good squad depth is comforting. I think Carse and debutant Payne bowled really well. Big thanks to the Barmy Army for supporting us everywhere, a trip to Amsterdam is something they must've fancied.
Scott Edwards, The Netherlands Captain: From where we started this series, we took some good learning throughout and we will come back stronger. Yeah, I am happy with my current form, I feel that the wicket was harder today but the English batters made it look easy. 280 odd was something in our mind for the first innings total.
Surprise, Surprise. Jason Roy is the Player of the Match: Very chuffed to finish on a high as well. Incredible traveling fans, so it's great to put a smile on their face. We always pride ourselves on our standards and we kept that throughout the series. The bowlers were great and it's nice for Payne to get his first wicket today. It's a good chance for us to see where we are all at individually. There's a big test for us coming up in the summer and we have to be ready. (The new boys) They didn't feel like new players coming in. They've played 50 games and the future looks bright. The fans have been unbelievable throughout the series and we should make a habit of coming here more often.
England: 248/2 in 30.1 overs win the match by 8 wickets.

Jason Roy 101*(86b) | Jos Buttler 86*(64b)
Paul van Meekeren 2/59 in 7 overs.

What a win, what a win for England! They are now at the top of the World Cup Super League standings after completing a whitewash over the Dutch. England were the clear favourites for the match but finishing the run chase off in the 31 over itself is something remarkable. It still comes off as no surprise considering what they did in the first ODI.

Roy and Salt made sure that England were off to a flyer. They were absolutely cruising in the powerplay and scoring at around 9 runs per over. However, Paul van Meekeren brought the game back to life by removing Salt and Malan in the 10th over itself. It seemed like they would look to regroup from here but that wasn't really the case.

Buttler and Roy did not slow down at all. They took fewer risks initially but kept scoring at a good pace. After a certain point, the duo took on the attack and sent it to the cleaners. They added 163 runs together in 121 deliveries. The Dutch were dejected but taking on the World Champions is no easy task. Fred Klaassen was the only bowler who went for under 8 runs per over
31.0
30.1 Tim Pringle to Jos Buttler, SIX! BUTTLER DELIVERS IN STYLE! Tossed up in his slot, Buttler unleashes some serious bottom-hand power to wallop this to clear the commentary box over cow corner. That will be that. Game, set, match for England. They win by 8 wickets and complete the whitewash. 
Roy drives down the ground and brings up his 10th ODI century. Only four players have scored more ODI hundreds for England and now he is joint fifth with the man he is batting right now, Jos Buttler.

29.6 Bas de Leede to Jason Roy, CENTURY NUMBER 10 FOR JASON ROY! Right in his slot around the off-stump. Roy presents the full face of the bat to drill this past the bowler to bring up his three-figure score
29.5 Bas de Leede to Jos Buttler, back of a length on the middle stump, Buttler punches it down to long-on to get Roy back on strike 
What's Buttler going to do? Will he push them back and help Roy get to his century or look for the boundaries and finish things off?
29.4 Bas de Leede to Jason Roy, full slower one angled into Roy, clipped to mid-wicket to scamper across for a single 
29.3 Bas de Leede to Jason Roy, FOUR! Roy moves onto 96. Short and wide once more. No remorse from Roy as he pounds this one between extra cover and mid-off to inch closer to his milestone
29.3 Bas de Leede to Jason Roy, wide. Slower one down the leg side. Will have to bowl that one again.
Roy is into the 90s now, can he get to three digits?
29.2 Bas de Leede to Jason Roy, FOUR! That is some serious muscle! Short and outside the off-stump, Roy unleashes a flat-batted smash down the ground. Back past the bowler as Roy moves into the nineties. Decent effort in the deep but that was hit to firmly!
29.1 Bas de Leede to Jos Buttler, full and wide outside the off-stump, Buttler pushes it out towards sweeper cover for a single 
Buttler has absolutely broken van Meekeren's confidence with multiple boundaries in that over. He takes a single and retains the strike, can he finish things off in the next over itself?
