England will 'keep on trying' to break ODI 500-run barrier, vows Jos Buttler

England narrowly missed hitting a major ODI milestone against Netherlands, but Jos Buttler has told fans to watch this space.

Jos Buttler has vowed that England will continue to chase a 500-run ODI target after setting a new world record in their win over the Netherlands.

Buttler scored a century in just 47 balls before finishing on an unbeaten 162 to help England to a mammoth 498 for four.

Phil Salt (122) and Dawid Malan (125) also enjoyed themselves, and Liam Livingstone added 66 from just 22 balls as he scored the fastest 50 in England history.

It all mounted up to hand England a win by 232 runs, although Buttler couldn't help but be a little disappointed to narrowly fail to break the 500-run barrier.

"We'll keep trying but it's a tough thing to try and achieve," he said.

"We'll have to play on a belting wicket at a small ground but the biggest thing, irrelevant of the score, is the mentality we show as a team.

"We keep trying to better that and keep trying to be aggressive and brave when we play. The same message is for the team is we keep trying to push the boundaries, take the game forward and take the game on.

"This is the most fun environment I've ever played in and it's a great team to be a part of.

"It's been great to be back and on a normal tour and being able to not worry about (Covid) bubbles and that kind of thing. We've had a good, fun few days and it's nice to get out there as a group."

It was a landmark day for Buttler's Lancashire team-mate Salt, who scored scored a classy century on his ODI debut.

It was certainly an eyecatching performance, and it has Buttler predicting there is plenty more to come.

"He looks just another one off the production line with white-ball batters in England," Buttler said.

"I've been really impressed watching him up close in the days leading into this.

"He's struck the ball incredibly cleanly here, it puts the bowlers under a lot of pressure. He's very fearless and in the Jason Roy mould at the top of the order. He's got a great future."
