The series had originally been due to take play in May 2021, but was postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Netherlands head into an eagerly-anticipated trio of matches off the back of six consecutive ODI defeats at the hands and West Indies, during which they showed flashes of competitiveness, but were ultimately beaten with relative ease.

For their part, England will be competing in their first series under new white-ball head coach Matthew Mott following his appointment last month, but will be playing with a somewhat weakened squad.

Absences due to the ongoing New Zealand Test series back home, as well as injuries to the likes of Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer, have left Morgan’s squad without a number of key figures.

The 2019 world champions have struggled for form since that famous triumph at Lord’s too, losing a home series to Australia before being turned over by Ireland and India.

Last summer, however, England did comfortably see off a lacklustre Sri Lanka side, while their second string recorded a 3-0 whitewash against Pakistan.
