Amelia Kerr registers highest individual score in Women's ODIs
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.
Her 232 off 145 is the highest induvial score in women's ODI and she thus broke the 21-year-old record held by Belinda Clarke of Australia. Clarke was the first cricketer to record a double-century in ODIs when she scored 229 against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997.
Kerr reached her double-century off 134 deliveries with a four in the 46th over. She was on 217 when the final over of New Zealand's innings began. And she struck two boundaries off the fourth and fifth delivery and a six off the final to etched her name in cricket history books.
Kerr carried her bat through and her innings was studded with 31 fours and two sixes. At 17 years & 243 days, Kerr also became the youngest double-centurion in international cricket men and women included.
