New Zealand Women have broken the world record for the highest one-day international score by posting a mammoth 490 for four against Ireland in Dublin.

The White Ferns surpassed their own 21-year-old record of 455 in the 48th over as they batted first having won the toss in the opening ODI.

Captain Suzie Bates top-scored with 151 from 94 balls as her team also went past the highest ever score in the men's game - the 444/3 set by England against Pakistan in 2016.

New Zealand Women also came within touching distance of the highest List A score in history, set when Surrey posted 496 against Gloucestershire in 2007.

Bates was one of two centurions for the visitors, with Maddy Green scoring 121 in just 77 balls. Jess Watkin and Amelia Kerr also blasted quick half-centuries.

On a bruising day for the home side, it was 17-year-old Cara Murray who fared worst of the bowlers, conceding an enormous 119 runs from her 10 overs, although she did take two wickets.

The world record total comes two days after New Zealand Women inflicted a crushing 10-wicket T20 defeat on their Irish counterparts.

On that occasion, Watkin and Bates chased down Ireland's 136 for eight in just 11 overs.
