英格蘭在荷蘭。伊恩-摩根失敗,但遊客完成了系列賽的勝利

最後更新於.從板球部分

英格蘭隊完成了對荷蘭隊的系列賽勝利,但在壓力下的隊長Eoin Morgan再次在球棒上失敗。

大衛-威爾利拿下了2-46分,荷蘭隊在周五贏得折騰後被限制在235-7分,這塊破舊的場地曾用於英格蘭隊創紀錄的ODI總成績。

Scott Edwards的78分和Bas de Leede的34分給了荷蘭人一些機會,但是Salt和Jason Roy(73分)在Dawid Malan(37*)和Moeen Ali(38*)完成工作之前奠定了平台。

英格蘭隊的隊長摩根經歷了悲慘的一天,打出了系列賽中的第二個鴨子。

與兩天前英格蘭隊在烈日下令人眼花繚亂的498比4的比賽相比,這場比賽不可避免地變得更加低調,在一夜的大雨推遲了比賽的開始後,比賽被縮減為每方41分鐘。

在VRA板球場灰濛濛的天空下,荷蘭隊的中層人員為他們的總成績帶來了可觀的回報,這要歸功於愛德華茲和Teja Nidamanuru的73分得分。

但是,儘管Logan van Beek和Shane Snater在晚些時候連續擊出六分球,但他們在20局後仍以93比3的小分領先。

Salt和Roy在第一輪比賽中巧妙地刺穿了內場,而不是走空中路線,形成了139分的第一板。

當摩根和利亞姆-利文斯通(4歲)廉價離場時,英格蘭遭遇了一些不安,但馬蘭的冷靜頭腦和莫恩-阿里的無畏精神使遊客在30球的情況下回家。

這場勝利使英格蘭在國際刑事法院板球世界盃超級聯賽中又得到了10分--用來決定明年在印度舉行的比賽的資格。

摩根再次失敗,薩爾和羅伊大放異彩

在這個系列賽的準備階段,摩根再次面對關於他在球隊中的未來角色的問題,他的狀態和體能都被打上了問號。

他目前正在阿姆斯特爾芬處理腹股溝/大腿的問題,並且之前一直與長期的背部和膝蓋問題作鬥爭。

在他過去的26場白球比賽中,他只有一個半世紀的成績,而在這個時候,對英格蘭頂級球隊位置的競爭從未感到如此激烈。

他在周五的比賽中只打了一球,被困於lbw,但這次情況更糟。摩根面對7個球,事實上,他看起來非常不適應--他的時機不對,擊球選擇被自我懷疑的漩渦所包裹。

英格蘭隊的世界盃冠軍隊長在湯姆-庫珀(Tom Cooper)擲出的一個球中被擊出了底線--在中斷六年後參加這個系列賽--被謝恩-斯奈特在後點接住。

這與羅伊和薩特的流暢發揮形成了鮮明的對比。羅伊在前9個球中擊出了5個四分球,擊中了球門的兩邊,用粗暴的擊球穿過蓋板顯示了他的意圖,然後跨過他的樹樁,將任何東西彈到了廣場後面。

雖然Jonny Bairstow是Roy的既定開球搭檔,但他與更正統的Salt很好地對接,Salt利用球的速度打開球面,在熟練地掃射之前沖向地面。

拋球前不久,公共廣播系統響起了《不可能的任務》的樂曲,這也巧妙地概括了荷蘭隊在第一場ODI中開始比賽時面臨的情況。

喬斯-巴特勒在那場勝利後宣稱,英格蘭隊將繼續努力衝刺500分,因此可以理解,當摩根錯誤地叫停時,荷蘭隊的替補隊長愛德華茲給了他的投球手一些喘息機會。

荷蘭隊曾兩次在T20比賽中擊敗英格蘭隊--2009年在Lord's追擊162分,2014年在吉大港防守135分--但摩根的球隊打出了與當年不同的板球品牌,損失了18局也沒有什麼區別。

英格蘭隊的進攻做得很好,然而,由於擊球手的失誤占了荷蘭隊的四張門票,他們從來沒有真正發揮過自己的作用。

布萊登-卡斯(1-36)表現出了一定的攻擊性,在威爾利從中門處平拋出愛德華茲的時候,他又將湯姆-庫珀困在了地上,表現得很積極。阿迪爾-拉希德(2-50)在某些方面表現不錯,但莫恩-阿里的表現卻很差。

摩根在賽場上的作用和影響仍然沒有減弱--他的戰術和保齡球變化在這裡是非常準確的。

但是,在他的對手皮特-塞拉爾因為持續的背部問題而退役的這一天,這位35歲的英格蘭隊長的腦海中一定會閃過類似的想法。

England completed a series victory over the Netherlands but under-pressure captain Eoin Morgan once again failed with the bat.

David Willey took 2-46 as the Dutch were restricted to 235-7 after they had won the toss on a worn pitch used for England's record-breaking ODI total on Friday.

Scott Edwards' brisk 78 and 34 from Bas de Leede gave the Dutch something to bowl at, but Salt and Jason Roy (73) laid the platform before Dawid Malan (37*) and Moeen Ali (38*) finished the job.

England skipper Morgan endured a miserable day, though, with a second duck of the series.

Inevitably this match was a more low-key affair, reduced to 41 overs a side after overnight rain delayed the start, than England's dazzling 498-4 in the scorching sunshine two days ago.

The Netherlands middle order brought respectability to their total under grey skies at the VRA Cricket Ground thanks to a 73-run stand from Edwards and Teja Nidamanuru.

But from a circumspect 93-3 after 20 overs at drinks they never kicked on despite a late flurry of sixes from Logan van Beek and Shane Snater.

Salt and Roy then adroitly pierced the in-field during the first powerplay, rather than taking the aerial route, in a clinical 139-run first-wicket stand.

England suffered a few jitters when Morgan and Liam Livingstone (4) departed cheaply but Malan's cool head and Moeen Ali's fearlessness got the tourists home with 30 balls to spare.

The victory gave England another 10 points in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League - used to determine qualification for next year's tournament in India.

Morgan fails again as Salt and Roy shine

In the build-up to this series, Morgan had again fielded questions about his future role in the team with question marks over both form and fitness.

He is currently managing a groin/thigh problem in Amstelveen, and has previously struggled with longstanding back and knee issues.

In his last 26 white-ball innings he has just one half-century at a time when competition for places in England's top order has never felt so intense.

He lasted one ball on Friday, trapped lbw, but this was worse. Morgan faced seven balls and, in truth, looked excruciatingly out of touch - his timing off and shot selection wrapped in a whirlpool of self-doubt.

England's World Cup-winning skipper was dismissed swiping across the line at one tossed up by Tom Cooper - playing in this series after a six-year break - and caught at backward point by Shane Snater.

It was in stark contrast to the fluidity with which Roy and Salt played. Roy took five fours off the first nine balls, hitting both sides of the wicket, showing his intent with brutish crunches through the covers then stepping across his stumps and flicking anything behind square.

Although Jonny Bairstow is Roy's established opening partner he dovetailed nicely with the more orthodox Salt, who used the pace of the ball to open the face and punch down the ground before skilfully slog sweeping.

The score from 'Mission Impossible' blared out over the public address system moments before the toss, and neatly summed what the Dutch faced when they began their innings in the first ODI.

With Jos Buttler proclaiming in the wake of that victory that England would keep trying to blast 500 it was understandable, then, that the Netherlands' stand-in skipper Edwards gave his bowlers some respite when Morgan called incorrectly.

The Dutch have twice beaten England in T20Is - chasing 162 at Lord's in 2009 and defending 135 in 2014 in Chittagong - but Morgan's side play a different brand of cricket to those days, and the loss of 18 overs made little difference.

With the ball England's attack did well, yet with the sense they never had to really exert themselves as batter error accounted for four of the Dutch wickets.

Brydon Carse (1-36) showed some zip and nipped one back to trap Tom Cooper lbw as Willey, who also ran out Edwards with a flat throw from mid-wicket, was aggressive. Adil Rashid (2-50) bowled well in patches although Moeen Ali was a touch expensive.

Morgan's role and influence on the field of play remains undiminished - his tactics and bowling changes here were pretty much spot on.

But on a day when his opposite number Pieter Seelaar retired because of a persistent back problem, similar thoughts must be passing through the 35-year-old England captain's mind.
