Amelia Kerr Becomes Youngest Double Ton Scorer In ODI Cricket

And White Ferns now hold the record for top three totals in one day internationals. Recently, New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day global score by posting a huge 490/4 total against Ireland in Dublin on Friday.

Opening the innings, Kerr, 17, struck 31-fours and two-sixes in her 145-ball knock - that bettered Australian Belinda Clark's previous record of 229 - as New Zealand, for the third time in six days, posted 400-plus runs.

Kerr's performance led to two new records - the highest women's ODI total in history and the youngest cricketer to score a double-century.

Kerr's 232 is the third-best in all ODI cricket, after Rohit Sharma's 264 for India against Sri Lanka in 2014 and fellow New Zealander Martin Guptill's 237no against Windies during the 2015 World Cup. At 17 years & 243 days, Kerr also became the youngest double-centurion in worldwide cricket - men and women included. "I knew that the powerplay was coming so once we got to the powerplay, with only three out, I was going to try to go hard then".

"I didn't think [captain Suzie Bates] was going to bowl me - I thought she was just going to have me stand at slip all day".

"I was a bit sore", Kerr said.

"I could hear announcements [about her records] being made over the loudspeakers but I couldn't hear because of all the clapping".

Kerr had previously scored 174 runs in her fledgling career, the Tawa College student having made her name as a bowler of some talent. They posted 440/3 with the bat in 305-run win.

Before today, Amelia's highest score was 81 not out and that was her lone fifty-plus innings.

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