Women's cricket has been on a roll in the last two seasons, and New Zealand gave a massive push to its image on Friday by breaking the record for the highest total in One-day Internationals in their first game against Ireland. The men's record stands at 444/3, achieved by England against Pakistan in Nottinghmam (Aug, 2016).

Bates' 94-ball innings featured a strike rate of 160.63, the second-highest in an innings of 100 or more in women's ODI cricket.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 to be launched today, this is what we know
Have you installed MIUI 10 update 8.6.6 on Redmi Note 5 Pro? But be prepared to be okay with an HD+ display if you go for the Y2. I haven't seen any slowdowns on the Redmi Y2 , and I've been using the version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The White Ferns surpassed their own 21-year record of 455 as they secured a 347 run victory in Dublin. This is the biggest ODI innings total in history.

Cara Murray of Ireland Women has conceded 119 runs in 10 overs against NZ Women today - the most by any bowler in ODI history (Men/Women).

Hilary Duff pregnant with second child
Duff and the singer have dated on-and-off for a few years, most recently getting back together in October . She warned, "Besides, watch, I'll probably get some evil spawn of Hilary the next time around".

Suzie Bates also registered a personal record, her score of 151 is now the highest individual score ever by a Kiwi woman. On the other hand, Watkin struck 10 boundaries in her composed 59-ball 62-runs knock. Suzie Bates starred with 151 off 94 balls. Further, Green continued and she too scored her century by scoring 121 off 77 and later, Amelia Kerr added 81 not out off 45, that helped them post a mammoth total of 490 with the loss of only 4 wickets. Incidentally, this is only the third instance when a 400-plus score has been made in women's ODIs.

"It's unbelievable really", Bates said following the innings. She had dismissed captain Laura Delany (37) and Jennifer Gray (35) - the only two Ireland batsmen to pass 20. She also went past Debbie Hockley to become New Zealand's highest run-getter in ODI cricket. Notably, this match was played on the same pitch where New Zealand had chased down 137 in 11 overs without losing a wicket on Wednesday.
