New Zealand have posted the highest score in one-day global history, blasting a monstrous total of 490 against Ireland in Dublin on Friday. This is the biggest ODI innings total in history. A marathon opening stand of 172 between Suzie and Jess Watkin (62 off 59 balls) was only the beginning of the carnage. New Zealand women opted to bat first batting friendly conditions in Dublin.

New Zealand shattered a 21-year-old record that they previously set when they scored 455-5 against Pakistan at Christchurch in 1997.

Captain Suzie Bates was the star of the innings with a remarkable knock of 151 runs off 94 balls while Maddy Green scored 121 runs off 77 balls.

Indeed, four of the five bowlers Ireland used on Friday are now in the top five all-time most expensive women's ODI list. Ireland: A Kenealy 81-0 (9), I Joyce 13-0 (1), L Little 92-0 (10), L Maritz 92-1 (10), C Murray 119-2 (10), G Lewis 92-1 (10).

"To set a world-record for men's and women's cricket is pretty special and it's going to take a bit to chase it down", Bates said.

Murray is a 17-year-old and was making her ODI debut, having only previously played in one Twenty20 worldwide on Wednesday against the same opposition when New Zealand won by 10 wickets.

The visitors bowled out Ireland for 144 to win the match by 346 runs.

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. England men's cricket team had scored 444/3 in 50 overs in an ODI match, also against Pakistan, at Nottingham on August 30, 2016.
