  • New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates struck 151, her 10th ODI century

New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day worldwide score by posting a mammoth 490 for four against Ireland in Dublin on Friday. Louise Little and Gaby Lewis conceded 92 runs off 10 overs each while Cara Murray went for 119 off her 10 overs.

New Zealand women amassed 490/4 in their first ODI against Ireland in Dublin, streaking past their own mark set over 20 years ago.

In men's cricket, the highest ODI total is 444 for three by England against Pakistan in August, 2016 at Nottingham.

While Bates played a trail-blazing knock of 94-ball 151, Green smashed 77-ball 121 as New Zealand absolutely dismantled the Ireland bowling attack whose inexperience was left exposed in front of their home crowd in Dublin. The Irish wickets were spread around by the White Ferns, though Leigh Kasperek cleaned up the tail to claim 4-17 off 2.3 overs.

"It's unbelievable", Bates, who scored her 10th ODI century, said.

"When it happened and came over the loud speaker I did actually have a bit of a moment because you think about the hard work you have done and the people who have helped you get here".

The White belted a whopping 64 fours and seven sixes, and produced century stands for the first two wickets - the first time a team has done this since 2000.

Bates slammed 24 boundaries and two sixes and established a 172-run partnership stand with opener Jess Watkin (62).

Game two of the three-match ODI series is at the same venue tomorrow night.

She hit 15 of the 19 runs New Zealand scored in the final over, but the first-ever 500 in ODIs, men or women, was just a touch far away.
