White Ferns captain Suzie Bates is lighting it up in the UK's Women's Super League for the Southern Vipers, earning herself the potential performance of the tournament already.

The 29-year-old all-rounder knocked 119 runs against the Loughborough Lightning overnight at County Ground in Derby, becoming the first woman ever to reach a century in the competition.

Bates knocked in 15 fours along with four sixes off 72 deliveries for the record haul.

But Bates wasn't finished.

The Kiwi went on to lead her team with the ball by picking up three wickets as they defended their 180 runs to take a 46 run win.

The Vipers currently sit at the top of the table in the overall standings with two wins from two games.
