4:07 pm on 19 March 2009

Centuries to captain Haidee Tiffen and Suzie Bates have helped the New Zealand women's cricketers post an imposing 373 for 7 in their world cup match against Pakistan in Sydney.

It was a maiden hundred for Tiffen while Bates' 168, from just 105 balls, bettered her previous best of 122.

The White Ferns are guaranteed to qualify for Sunday's world cup final if they beat Pakistan.
