White Ferns smash record 490-4

Suzie Bates Stars as New Zealand Women Smash Record ODI Total

New Zealand women shatter record for highest ODI score

New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day global total by making 490-4 against Ireland in Dublin today. Bates' tally of 151 (off 94 balls; 24 x fours, 2 x sixes) was her second highest innings in this format and the 10 century of her global career. Their total is the highest score in men's or women's one-day internationals.

The score is now the highest in the history of ODI cricket including men's cricket.

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

India's highest ODI total is 358/2, notched up against Ireland women at Potchefstroom, South Africa in May past year.

The New Zealand bowling unit put in a highly-polished performance, led by a career-best 4-17 by off-spinner Leigh Kasperek. She shared a brilliant 172-run stand with debutant Jess Watkin who scored a 59-ball 62. They achieved the biggest win - by 408 runs - when they ran up 455 for 5, the previous highest total in ODIs, in Christchurch in 1997.

Trump says he ‘probably will end up supporting’ Elizabeth Warren’s marijuana bill
The senator opposed legalization at the time but has since defended Colorado's legal marijuana industry from federal meddling. Trump's embrace of the bill is just another blow to his attorney general, who has been a longtime opponent of marijuana.

Bates blasted 151 off 94 balls, with 24 fours and two sixes.

"It's unbelievable really", Bates said following the innings. However, she conceded 119 runs in her 10-over spell that made her the most expensive bowler in the history of ODI cricket.

Bates' attacking flair was on full display as she played a glorious range of shots all around the wicket, scoring at a strike rate of over 150 throughout. Bates further added 38 to her tally before 17-year-old legspinner Cara Murray, also making her ODI debut, drew Bates out of her crease and had her stumped in the 30th over, and New Zealand were 288 for 2.

Apart from Murray, as many as three bowlers conceded more than 90 runs in their 10 overs.
