Jason Roy roared back to form with a stunning hundred as England completed a 3-0 drubbing of the Netherlands by winning the last match of their ODI series by eight wickets on Wednesday.

The first ODI matches between the two countries outside the Cricket World Cup followed an expected course, with England winning by 232 runs, six wickets and now eight wickets over the past six days in Amstelveen.

The Dutch collapsed to 244 all out after an encouraging start to their innings and Jason Roy's unbeaten century helped England polish off their run chase with nearly 20 overs to spare. The only blip in England's reply saw Phil Salt (49) and Dawid Malan get dismissed in the space of three balls, but Roy and Buttler got the

innings back on track with an unbroken partnership of 163 runs off 125 balls.

Roy struck 15 fours in his 101 -- his 10th ODI century -- and Jos Buttler also tucked into the Dutch attack, ending the match with a huge six into the trees to finish on 86 not out.

Another enthusiastic crowd at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen had watched half-centuries by Max O'Dowd (50), Bas de Leede (56) and Scott Edwards (64) help the Dutch reach 203/3.

But David Willey took three wickets to mop up the tail, having also removed opener Vikram Singh. Willey took 4/36 off 8.2 overs, including the final wicket of Paul van Meekeren (2), as the Dutch were dismissed with four balls remaining of their allotted 50 overs.
