New Zealands Amelia Becomes Youngest Cricketer To Score Double Ton

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

17-year-old Amelia Kerr blasts 232* to record highest individual score in women's ODIs

Her unbeaten 232, set when batting through the entire White Ferns innings, set a new benchmark for the highest score in women's ODI history. The 17-year-old Kerr had scored less than 174 runs in ODI cricket before smashing the Irish bowlers to all parts of the ground during her innings of 232 not out of 145 deliveries. Rohit Sharma hit 33 fours during his record-breaking 264 in 2014 against Sri Lanka.

Kerr went on to break the record of former Pakistan skipper, Javed Miandad who scored his maiden double century during a Test match against England aged 19 years and 140 days.


Kerr was also involved in the second-highest partnership in women's ODI cricket, as she and Otago Sparks all-rounder Leigh Kasperek (113) piled on 285-runs for the second-wicket.

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.

"I hadn't heard of Belinda Clark [before]", Kerr said.

Surpassing Javed Miandad (19) as the youngest double-centurion in worldwide cricket, she wouldn't let the momentous occasion sway her evening's plans.

Michael Porter Jr. cancels workout, may still allow medical evaluations
Representatives of multiple teams that reviewed the information with their medical staffs say those results are encouraging. While he did make a comeback for the end of Mizzou's season, Porter appears to be hindered by injuries yet again.

With a laundry list of records now on her resume, it bears repeating - somehow, Kerr has accomplished this at just 17 years of age. The stand is also the women's ODI record for second wicket anda New Zealand record for any wicket. She broke the record of Chris Gayle, who reached this landmark in 138 balls against Zimbabwe during the 2015 World Cup.

"Last ball, I hit a six and everyone was clapping but I had no clue what they were clapping about but I found at at the end when I walked off".

"After my innings I had a little nap and then went out to field". And White Ferns now hold the record for top three totals in one day internationals.

It got easier from there.

"It was pretty special", she said after the match.
