Bates, Green tons power New Zealand women to record ODI total

New world record Suzie Bates stars as New Zealand post highest ever ODI total

The New Zealand White Ferns have gone 1-0 up against Ireland Women in the three-match Women's One-Day International series in Dublin, in the process hitting a world record team total for the ODI format (for women or men).

Bates blasted 151 runs from 94 balls while Green scored a career high 121. In men's cricket, the highest total in ODI is 444/3, made by England against Pakistan in August 2016 at Nottingham. This is the biggest ODI innings total in history.

New Zealand went on to win the match by sensational 346 runs as Ireland were bowled out for a mere 144 in 35.3 overs.

New Zealand women team bettered their own 21-year old world record of 455/5 against Pakistan...

Suzie Bates who smashed a 94-ball 151 achieved the second best strike rate in an ODI game of women's cricket while scoring more than 100 runs. The partnership was broken by Gaby Lewis in the 19th over when she dismissed Watkin on 62.

The White Ferns 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.

Also, in her 151, Bates' strike-rate of 160.63 was the second-highest for an women's global century-maker.

Amelia Kerr contributed in piling on the misery by scoring 81 off 71 balls with nine fours and three sixes.

Opting to bat first, the White Ferns decimated the Ireland bowling attack scoring nearly 10 runs an over.

490 for 4- New Zealand women's total, the highest in women's ODIs.

This is just the third chance in women's cricket when more than 400 runs are scored in one-day internationals.

Louise Little, aged 15 who made her debut at 13 a year ago, Lara Maritz and Gaby Lewis (both 17) all bowled 10 overs and conceded 92 each.
