Centuries to three of England's top four, highlighted by a brutal display from Jos Buttler,

carried England to a world-record ODI total in the first of their three ODIs against Netherlands.

Jonny Bairstow's jaw-dropping example to win the second Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge on Tuesday,

Buttler scored England's second-fastest hundred in ODIs, smashing his way to the mark off 47 balls.

He now holds his side's top-three fastest, his 46-ball effort in 2015 and 50-ball knock in 2019, both against Pakistan, bookending this one.

England were cruising after 10 overs at 67 for 1 but that was nothing compared to what was coming.

Malan survived an lbw decision attempting a reverse-paddle off Seelaar on 25,

Malan was somewhat becalmed after the powerplay but he raised the tempo by striking Aryan Dutt for four through point and Phillippe Boissevain for six down the ground.

Livingstone raced to 46 off just 13 balls and was within reach of AB de Villiers' 16-ball record for fastest ODI fifty

With the mystical 500-run mark still in England's sights in the final over,

Livingstone launched the final ball for six over deep midwicket to leave them two runs shy.
