New Zealand W registered the highest ever One Day International (ODI) team total in the history of limited overs internationals. New Zealand women team bettered their own 21-year old world record of 455 for five against Pakistan in 1997.

White Ferns captain Suzie Bates leads NZ to an ODI world record 490-4.

This huge victory is also New Zealand Women's 2nd biggest in ODIs. Bates and debutant Jess Watkin added 172 runs for first wicket and then Bates and Green shared 116 for the second. She hit 15 of the 19 runs New Zealand scored in the final over, but the first-ever 500 in ODIs, men or women, was just a touch far away.

2000 The last time a team had century stands for the first two wickets. Bates' 151 is now the 3rd highest individual score by a New Women in ODIs and her personal 2nd best.

Both Bates and Green went on to score their respective centuries.

"Saving lives at sea is a duty, but transforming Italy into an enormous refugee camp is not", Salvini said on Facebook on Monday. The aid group said in a statement it had taken "good note" of Salvini's stance, as reported earlier by Italian media.

Apart from Bates, Maddy Green (121, 105b, 17×4, 2×6) and Amelia Kerr (81 no, 71b, 9×4, 3×6) also contributed in piling the misery of the Ireland players.

Opting to bat first, the White Ferns decimated the Ireland bowling attack scoring nearly 10 runs an over.

Lewis and captain Laura Delany set about restoring stability to the innings, however Lewis - who was following on from her innings of 61 in the T20I on Wednesday - had her promising innings of 20 runs (26 balls; 4 x fours) cut short by a great in-field catch by Kate Ebrahim.

Teenage leg-spinner Cara Murray set another unwanted record by conceding 119 runs - the most by any bowler, male or female, in an ODI - during her maximum 10 overs.

This is just the third chance in women's cricket when more than 400 runs are scored in one-day internationals.
