New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day global score by posting a mammoth 490 for four against Ireland in Dublin on Friday.

Skipper Suzie Bates top-scored with 151 from 94 balls as her team also went past England men's mark of 444.

The White Ferns have even surpassed the highest record of men's total of 444/3 by England and established themselves as the queens of cricket at YMCA Cricket Club, Dublin. This is the biggest ODI innings total in history. During her innings she also created New Zealand cricket history by surpassing Debbie Hockley as New Zealand's highest run scorer in Women's ODIs.

Coming to the historic feat, the White Ferns, as the New Zealand Women are popularly known as, opted to bat first on a good batting wicket.

New Zealand women had scored 455/5 against Pakistan in 1997. The stand ended when Rachel Delaney, a substitute fielder, pulled off a stunning one-handed catch at deep square leg to dismiss Watkin for 62 off 59 balls.

This time, Bates walked back to pavilion after scoring 151 off just 94 balls, including 24 fours and 2 sixes.

The previous most expensive analysis in an ODI, men's or women's, was by Australia's Mick Lewis who had figures of 10-0-113-0 against South Africa in the famous "438 game" at Johannesburg in 2006. Amelia Kerr contributed in piling the misery of the Ireland players by scoring 81 off 71 balls with nine fours and three sixes. A major blow was served to Ireland as their experienced spinner Isobel Joyce was barred from bowling after she bowled two beamers.

26- Number of overs which yielded 10 or more runs in New Zealand's innings.

Meanwhile Gaby Lewis, Lara Maritz and Louise Little all gave away 92 runs off their 10 overs as the hosts conceded 110 from the final 10.
