The New Zealand team, which is known as the "white ferns", has now recorded the highest score of any ODI match, including male cricket.

Suzie Bates laid down the course with a blistering 94-ball 151, comprising of 24 fours and two sixes. England men's cricket team had scored 444/3 in 50 overs in an ODI match, also against Pakistan, at Nottingham on August 30, 2016.

New Zealand shattered a 21-year-old record that they previously set when they scored 455-5 against Pakistan at Christchurch in 1997.

India's highest ODI total is 358/2, notched up against Ireland women at Potchefstroom, South Africa in May a year ago.

Captain Suzie Bates smashed 151 off 94 balls en route to her 10th ODI century as she became the White Ferns' leading all-time scorer in 50-over cricket.

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.
