ENGLAND cruised to a 3-0 whitewash over the second-rate Netherlands - but doubts continue over skipper Eoin Morgan’s future. 

Morgan missed the final ODI with a groin problem, depriving him of the chance to prove he still has it after two ducks against the minnows.

Jos Buttler stood in as captain and led England to an easy eight-wicket victory to go top of the ICC Super League rankings.

 

Set 245 to win, Jason Roy smashed 101 off 86 balls while Buttler made a classy 86 to see them home after just 30.1 overs. 

Focus now turns to the Test arena and New Zealand but there is a packed one-day schedule before the autumn’s T20 World Cup in Australia. 

And the white-ball leader’s spot is under more scrutiny than ever given his rotten form and creaking body.

A legend for life after lifting the 2019 World Cup, his abilities as leader and tactician are not in question. 

But Morgan’s batting - just one half-century in his past 65 innings - is of serious concern.

Ex-Test captain Joe Root piled on the runs yet couldn’t buy a result - Morgan is leading but being carried by a winning machine.

He turns 36 in September and competition in this power-packed outfit is fierce.

Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes will both come back in, while county smashers Harry Brook and Sam Pain are knocking on the door. 

Whether Morgan soldiers on, walks or is pushed remains to be seen. 

But in replacement Buttler, 31, England have a natural leader and arguably the best one-day batsman in the world. 

Yet after winning the toss in baking Amsterdam he denied England fans the opportunity to see them smash 500 putting by the Dutch into bat. 

The mediocre hosts were bowled out in the last over for a modest 244. 

But it should have been plenty more given three of the top five reached 50 and they were 203-3 with 10 overs remaining. 

David Willey was the pick of the bowlers with 4/36 off eight while 30-year-old Gloucestershire seamer David Payne bagged a late wicket on debut. 

Openers Phil Salt and Roy raced to 85 from nine overs before Phil Salt was bowled for 49. 

Paul van Meekeren cleaned Dawid Malan up around his legs two balls later and the Netherlands suddenly had a sniff - until Buttler walked in at four. 

He and Roy cantered to half-centuries before both upped the ante with Roy bringing up the century - his 10th in ODIs - off 86 balls before Buttler hit the winning runs next ball with 119 balls to spare.

Rudy Gobert trade details: Jazz send 3-time Defensive Player of the Year winner to Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves took a major swing on Friday, trading for Utah Jazz center Rufy Gobert to fortify their defense.

The Wolves will look to build upon a season in which they won the NBA play-in tournament, thus making the official postseason, where they lost in six games to the Memphis Grizzlies.

While Gobert is an enforcing big man who has won the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award on three separate occasions, perhaps his value around the league wasn’t as high as Utah initially thought.

The Jazz appear to be going in a different direction, as this will raise questions about Donovan Mitchell’s future, as well.

As for Minnesota, they add a defensive stalwart behind Karl-Anthony Towns, creating a big-man duo none of us saw coming.

Rudy Gobert trade details: Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves Timberwolves Get Rudy Gobert Jazz Get 4 future first-round picks Malik Beasley Patrick Beverley Walker Kessler

Jarred Vanderbilt and Leandro Bolmaro are also on their way to Utah, per Adrian Wojnarowski. The picks in question are in 2023, 2025 and 2027 (all unprotected), as well as a 2029 top-5 protected first-round pick.

Sure, Gobert’s offensive game is limited, but he’s a rebounding force and limits any opposing big in the Western Conference. That includes the likes of Anthony Davis and Nikola Jokic, among others.

The curious question as to how Towns and Gobert will share the floor is an understandable one. Yet, Minnesota must think highly enough of him to throw four future first rounders in Utah’s direction. The fact that those are unprotected hopefully will not come back to bite them, as the Wolves surely expect to be a playoff team with this core in tact.
