New Zealand women's cricket team on Friday surpassed England's 444/3, the highest ODI total in the history of cricket, in a match against Ireland women at the YMCA Cricket Club, Dublin. Captain Suzie Bates scored remarkable knock of 151 runs off 94 balls as New Zealand posted 490/4 in their allotted 50 overs.

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

Bates slammed 24 boundaries and two sixes and established a 172-run partnership stand with opener Jess Watkin (62). Watkin struck 10 boundaries in her composed 59-ball knock.

Number three batswoman Maddy Green came to capitalise on New Zealand's amazing start and scored 121 runs off 77 balls. She slammed 15  boundaries and a six in her entertaining knock in Dublin.

Middle-order batswoman Amelia Kerr also shone with an unbeaten knock of 81 runs. She delighted the Dublin crowd with nine boundaries and three sixes in her 45-ball knock.

For Ireland women, Cara Murray led their bowling attack as she took two wickets. However, she conceded 119 runs in her 10-over spell that made her the most expensive bowler in the history of ODI cricket.
