WATCH: Jason Roy gets out by his cousin Shane Snater
England and the Netherlands are currently playing the first of three one-day internationals (ODIs) at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen. The Netherlands won the toss and chose to bowl first, and Jason Roy provided the breakthrough. Shane Snater also got him out in the second over of the game.
The delivery was pitched up and a little too full, coming inwards from off. Jason Roy attempted to drive, but his bat turned in his hands as he got an inside edge, and the ball struck the stumps. Surprisingly, the bowler is Jason Roy's cousin. In terms of the game, England quickly regained control as Philip Salt (122) and Dawid Malan (103*) stitched a 222-run stand as well.
Ahead of the game, at the toss, Eoin Morgan said: “We would have chased as well. We have a lot of talented players at home who have performed well in the Hundred and the County. Our strength has been great, we are looking towards the 2023 World Cup. Mott (Matthew) is a guy who comes with a lot of clarity and tells us exactly what he wants.”
Pieter Seelaar said at the toss: “We are going to have a bowl, it looks like a nice wicket from what we’ve seen in the West Indies series. Our death batting and the way we play spin we are looking to make improvements. It’s awesome to have a full ODI series, 100% we are looking to upset.”
