New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day worldwide total by making 490-4 against Ireland in Dublin today.

The 17-year-old did, however, take two wickets - including that of Bates, whom she had stumped to end a 94-ball innings featuring 24 fours and two sixes.

Jess Watkin (62) and Amelia Kerr (81) also recorded half-centuries with Wellington teen Kerr striking three 6s and nine 4s to finish on 81 off 45 balls.

With their incredible batting, New Zealand women team bettered their own 21-year old world record of 455 for five against Pakistan at Christchurch in January 1997, which was also the first instance of a 400-plus total in either men's or women's cricket.

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

New Zealand were particularly harsh on Ireland leg-spinner Cara Murray who went for 119 runs in her 10 overs.

Captain Suzie Bates and batswoman Maddy Green struck centuries to help New Zealand post a massive 490-4, before bowling Ireland out for 144. Joyce conceded 13 runs from her only over.

Two other Ireland bowlers, Louise Litlle and Lara Maritz put their names in the list of most expensive ODI bowlers going for 92 runs each.

An unprecedented 64 boundaries were hit in addition to the seven sixes by New Zealand batters.

The highest total in any men's one-day global is England's 3-444 against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 2016, with Alex Hales striking 171.
