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

Phil Salt’s 77 helped England to a six-wicket win in the second of three one-day internationals in Amstelveen.

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.
