And that's it. Jos Buttler picks up the Man of the Series prize and is now posing with the trophy. A comprehensive whitewash for the reigning World Champions. They will have tougher tests now with India coming to town for the remaining Test and then some limited overs games. The Dutch will host New Zealand next for a couple of limited overs games. That's all for now though, stay well, take care!

Jos Buttler, England captain: We've played very well. Brilliant with the ball, nice batting as well. There's a lot of cricket coming up which is very exciting, we have great depth in this squad, very excited. Great debut for Payne, Brydon Carse looks exciting and Salt has also been impressive. Thank you to the Barmy Army for travelling to Amsterdam.

Scott Edwards, Netherlands captain: Some nice learnings for the boys. Happy with my form, today was a harder wicket but England made that look easy. We looked to score about 280, but the wickets in the end, credit to England for keeping us down.

Jason Roy, Man of the Match: Very chuffed to finish off on a high, send off the travelling fans well. We pride ourselves on playing well, the bowlers have been brilliant. It's a great benchmark but we have big tests coming up in the summer. Every new player looked like they've played 50 games, they've enjoyed the atmoshphere. The future is bright. Netherlands is a great place to travel to, we should make a habit of it.

17:06 Local Time, 15:06 GMT, 20:36 IST: Sorry if that got over this quickly! England have chased down 244 in a canter, with eight wickets in the bag and almost 20 overs to spare! Jason Roy missed out on the runs in the first ODI, but he's more than compensated in the next two - with a fifty and now a century. England lost Salt and Malan in the same over in the final over of the powerplay, but since then the Dutch have been pummelled by Buttler! If anyone needs reminding, there is a certain Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root not playing this series, the depth and power hitting in this English side is frightening! A whitewash to begin the Matthew Mott era for England, plenty to reflect and learn for the Dutch...

30.1 Tim Pringle to Buttler, SIX , and just like that, the game is done... that was pitched fuller, Buttler just swings straight over long-on, clears the boundary with ease! Game, set, match! Series sealed 3-0

Tim Pringle [6.0-0-44-0] is back in the attack

ENG: 242-2 after 30 overs

29.6 Bas de Leede to Roy, FOUR , pitched up slightly, Roy turns down the ground to the right of mid-off and that's another boundary, and another hundred for the English opener. A thumbs up to his partner, a thumbs up to the stands. That's all, time to get this over with now...

29.5 Bas de Leede to Buttler, 1 run, length ball on middle, pushed to long-on to give the strike back to Roy who is on 97

29.4 Bas de Leede to Roy, 1 run, to mid-wicket, slower delivery on the pads, clipped to mid-wicket for a one

29.3 Bas de Leede to Roy, FOUR , back of a length outside off, Roy slaps that off the frontfoot between covers and mid-off for four more!

29.3 Bas de Leede to Roy, wide , fuller but strays down the pads, wide called!

29.2 Bas de Leede to Roy, FOUR , back of a length on off, Roy flat bats straight down the ground for a boundary! Don't forget me, he says as England are racing far to the target
