New Zealand teenage sensation Amelia Kerr smashes women's ODI record

Kerr New Zealand women set up records

White Ferns teenager Amelia Kerr has smashed her way into cricketing folklore with a world record knock.

Kerr's onslaught is also the third-highest individual score by a man or woman in one-day worldwide history.

Her 31 fours is a women's ODI record while her partnership of 295 with fellow-spinner Leigh Kasperek (113) was the second highest in the format.

The Wellington-born player hit 31 fours and two sixes in her 145-ball innings to top the 229 not out Australia's Belinda Clark amassed against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997 - nearly three years before Kerr was born.

New Zealand batter Amelia Kerr created history on Wednesday when she blasted a record-breaking unbeaten 232 against Ireland to become the second woman to score an ODI double-hundred at Dublin.

India's Rohit Sharma has the highest score in a one-day global, making 264 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata in 2014.

New Zealand's Martin Guptill made 237 against West Indies in 2015.

She also became the youngest ever to score a double ton across formats in global cricket.

"It's pretty surreal. The day couldn't go any better".

"I didn´t think I was going to bowl".

"I didn't get off to a flyer, I had to work hard". The double came in the 46th over, through another boundary shot, off 134 deliveries - also a record in women's ODIs.

Kerr had previously scored 174 runs in her fledgling career, the Tawa College student having made her name as a bowler of some talent.

New Zealand posted 490 in the first game, the highest ever men's or women's ODI team score, and won all three games against the 10th-ranked hosts by more than 300 runs.

New Zealand now travel across the Irish Sea to face England and South Africa in a Twenty20 tri-series, from June 20-July 1.
