After winning the three-match ODI series against the Netherlands, England stand-in skipper Jos Buttler expressed excitement about his squad’s depth. An unbeaten century by Jason Roy and an unbeaten 86-run knock by Buttler helped England chase down the target of 245 runs in 30.1 overs and with only two wickets lost at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen. England now leads the three-match One-Day International series 3-0. “We’ve performed admirably. Brilliant with the ball, as well as good batting. There’s a lot of cricket coming up, which is exciting, and we have a lot of depth in this squad “Buttler stated in a post-match presentation.
