Amelia Kerr slams 232* to break 21-year-old record in Women's ODIs
 
(Dublin, June 13, 2018):New Zealand's Amelia Kerr on Wednesday broke the record for the highest individual score in women's ODI in a match against Ireland in Dublin. The 17-year-old scored unbeaten 232 to break Belinda Clark's 21-year-old record of 229.

The teenager, opening the New Zealand innings, hit a whopping 31 fours and two sixes in her 145-ball unbeaten knock that took her side to 440 for 3 after electing to bat first in the third ODI.

Kerr then took a five-wicket haul (5/17) as Ireland were bowled out for 135 to hand New Zealand a massive 305-run victory.

The earlier record of 229 not out in the name former Australian captain Belinda was set when Amelia was not even born.

Belinda had made 229 not out against Denmark in Mumbai in December 1997.

Kerr's innings is third highest in ODI cricket, behind Rohit Sharma's 264 and Martin Guptill's 237.

She also became the youngest ever to score a double ton across formats in international cricket. The record was earlier held by Javed Miandad, who scored a double hundred in a Test match at 19 years and 140 days.

With the total of 440, New Zealand once again crossed the 400-run mark in the ongoing series. In the first ODI on Friday, New Zealand women had scored the all-time highest score in 50-overs format's history by piling up 490/4. In the process, they broke their record of 455 scored against Pakistan in 1997.

In the second ODI, they had posted 418. And White Ferns now hold the record for top three totals in one day internationals.
