At 17, New Zealand's Amelia Kerr Becomes Youngest Double Ton Scorer

 

Amelia Kerr's unbeaten 232 off 145 balls helped her enter record books as she became the highest inpidual run-scorer ever in women's ODI cricket on Wednesday. Riding on Kerr's blitzkrieg, New Zealand Women posted a mammoth 440 for 3 in the third ODI against Ireland in Dublin. Striking a whopping 31 boundaries and two sixes in her inning, Kerr's breathtaking knock tore apart the Irish bowling line-up for the second time in the series. With this blockbuster knock, 17-year-old Amelia is now the youngest women cricketer to score a double ton in ODIs. The fabulous knock also broke the 21-year-old record, going past Australia's Belinda Clark who scored 229 in 1997 against Denmark in Mumbai.
