New Zealand women have smashed the world record for the highest one-day global score by posting a mammoth 490-4 against Ireland. This is the biggest ODI innings total in history.

Jess Watkin (62) and Amelia Kerr (81) also recorded half-centuries with Wellington teen Kerr striking three 6s and nine 4s to finish on 81 off 45 balls. The New Zealand women team's previous best was 455/5 against Pakistan in 1997 which is now successfully beaten with a new high.

The White Ferns shattered their own 21-year-old record, set when they scored 455-5 against Pakistan in Christchurch in 1997. Maddy Green minted the Ireland bowlers to score 121 off 105 balls with 17 fours and two sixes.

The assault by the top order meant that the New Zealand eves also overtook England's record of 444 runs against Pakistan in men's cricket.

Murray is a 17-year-old and was making her ODI debut, having only previously played in one Twenty20 worldwide on Wednesday against the same opposition when New Zealand won by 10 wickets. 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. Joyce conceded 13 runs from her only over.

The highest total in any men's one-day worldwide is England's 444 for three against Pakistan at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, in 2016 while the highest score in any men's senior limited overs or List A match remains Surrey's 496 for four against Gloucestershire at The Oval in 2007, an innings that featured Ali Brown's 176.
