Amelia Kerr Becomes Youngest Double Ton Scorer In ODI Cricket

At 17 years and 243 days Amelia Kerr is also the youngest double-centurion in the format across genders

Kerr's unbeaten innings makes her only the second woman to score a double hundred in ODI cricket.

Kerr is now the second women and seventh overall cricketer to go past the 200-run mark in one-day global cricket.

The Australian was the first person to score a double hundred in ODI cricket when she amassed 229 against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997.

Seventeen-year-old New Zealander Amelia Kerr struck the highest individual score in Women's ODIs with an unbeaten 232 against Ireland in the third ODI in Dublin. By the time New Zealand's innings came to a close, Kerr had 31 fours [and just two sixes] to her name in an epochal performance that saw the Irish bowlers enjoy another day to erase from memory as swiftly as possible.

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

Kerr, who had only scored 174 runs in her career previously with a highest ODI score of 30, was promoted to open.

With Sophie Devine rested and captain Suzie Bates dropping down the batting order, Kasperek and, to a lesser extent, Amy Satterthwaite, also cashed in.

Satterthwaite, who scored 61, including 10 fours, from 45 balls, and Kerr posted 113 for the opening wicket.

In the context of how the stand panned out, Kasperek's 105-ball 113 was a modest attempt at run-making as Kerr effortlessly accumulated boundaries by the dozen.

With the total of 440, New Zealand once again crossed the 400-run mark in the ongoing series.

The White Ferns posted a world record 490-4 in a 346-run win the first ODI last Friday (Saturday NZT), then 418 in a 306-run victory in the second ODI on Sunday (Monday NZT).
