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.

New Zealand women had scored 455/5 against Pakistan in 1997.

Bates smashed a 94-ball 151 while Green raced away to a 77-ball 121 as New Zealand women stormed past England's 2016 world record of 444 against Pakistan.

Bates hit two sixes and 24 boundaries to score 151 runs from 94 balls while middle-order player Green scored 121 runs with one six and 15 boundaries.
