Kiwi teen Amelia Kerr sets world record in ODI
Dublin [Ireland], June 14 (ANI): New Zealand's teenage player Amelia Kerr snapped a world record in the women's ODI cricket by hammering a scintillating unbeaten knock of 232 runs during a match against Ireland in Dublin. The 17-year-old amassed the record total, including 31 boundaries and two sixes, in 145 balls as she became the highest individual scorer in women's ODI. With the feat, Kerr broke the 21-year-old record held by Australian Belinda Clarke, who scored unbeaten knock of 229 against Denmark in 1997. The teenager has become the third-highest individual run scorer in the history of men's and women's cricket besides also becoming the second woman in the cricketing history to achieve the feat of scoring a double hundred. At the age of 17 years and 243 days, Kerr is also the youngest cricketer to have scored a double century, stuff.co.nz reported. Kerr's record comes just few days after New Zealand's 490 for four against Ireland set a new record for highest-ever total in ODI cricket. This record-breaking knock also helped New Zealand put up a gigantic score of 440 runs on the board as the team defeated Ireland by 305 runs to clinch a series sweep in the three-match ODI.
