New Zealand women shatter record for highest ODI score

New Zealand women shatter record for highest ODI score

Their total is the highest score in men's or women's one-day internationals. They broke their own previous record of 455 for 5, which was set in 1997 against Pakistan in Christchurch. Apart from New Zealand this is done by Australia only.

Jess Watkin and Amelia Kerr blasted quick half-centuries to pile on the agony for Ireland in Dublin. Captain Suzie Bates scored a superb innings of 151 runs for New Zealand.

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.

The crowd sensed that only a special piece of cricket skill would break the partnership, and indeed that came to pass. Watkin, on 62 (59 balls; 10 x fours) pulled a ball from Ireland's Gaby Lewis out towards the square-leg boundary where substitute fielder Rachel Delaney took a low, running one-handed catch.

Madeline Green of NZ was also a century-maker with 121 runs on the board. Even this record is held by New Zealand; they had defeated Pakistan by 408 runs in the aforementioned game. Three other bowlers - Lewis, Little, and Lara Maritz - gave away 92 runs each while new-ball bowler Amy Kenealy went for 81 in nine overs.

Opting to bat first, the White Ferns decimated the Ireland bowling attack scoring nearly 10 runs an over. Notably, this match was played on the same pitch where New Zealand had chased down 137 in 11 overs without losing a wicket on Wednesday. However, she conceded 119 runs in her 10-over spell that made her the most expensive bowler in the history of ODI cricket.

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.
