New Zealand women hit record T20 score of 216 in win over South Africa

BBC- New Zealand broke the record for the highest score in a women’s Twenty20 international after they made 216-1 on the way to beating South Africa.

Captain Suzie Bates top scored with 124 not out off 66 balls as she and Sophie Devine (73) put on a record 182 for the first wicket at Taunton.

Bates also moved past ex-England skipper Charlotte Edwards as the leading run-scorer in women’s T20s.

South Africa were never in the hunt, finishing well short on 150-6.

New Zealand captain Suzie Bates: “That was one of the best wickets I’ve played on, it’s the best I’ve batted for a while. Sophie can hit the ball a long way and she’s added a lot at the top of the order. It’s so pleasing to get off a good start as we know South Africa and England are good Twenty20 sides.”

Earlier this month, the Kiwis broke the ODI record when they made 490-4 against Ireland in Dublin.
