Dublin: The New Zealand Women’s Cricket Team has named world record for the highest score in an innings in international cricket on Friday. New Zealand batted first by winning the toss in the one-day match against Ireland, raising 490 runs at the loss of four wickets, which is the highest score in the men’s and women’s cricket internationally. Skipper Suji Bates scored the highest 151 for Kiwi team, for which he faced 94 balls and added 24 sixes and two sixes.
Apart from them, Maddy Green scored 121 runs in which he hit 15 fours and a six. In his century innings, he played 77 balls. Apart from these two, Jade Wakisson (62) and Amelia Kerr scored half-centuries in 81 runs. Both unbeaten pavilions returned. Eyarland’s Kara Murray scored 121 runs in 10 overs and got two wickets. Louise Little and Lara Maritz scored 92-92.
Earlier, the highest score in international cricket was the name of New Zealand. Kiwi women scored 455 runs against Pakistan on January 29, 1997, at the loss of five wickets in Christchurch. The record for highest score in an innings in male cricket is the name of England, who scored 443 runs on 30 August 2016 in a three-wicket loss against Nottingham against Pakistan.
This is just the third chance in women’s cricket when more than 400 runs are scored in one-day internationals. Apart from New Zealand, this is done by Australia only. Australia had scored 412 runs in three matches against the Denmark women team in Mumbai in December 1997.
