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.
At just 17, the Kiwi star smashed the record for the highest ever women's ODI score against Ireland.
"I think I heard them say stuff on the speaker and everyone was clapping but I had no idea", said Kerr, who had not even heard of the previous record holder and was born three years after Clark made her score.More news: Opportunity Rover Is Stuck in a 'Dark, Perpetual Night'
The Wellington-born player hit 31 fours and two sixes in her 145-ball innings to top the 229 not out Australia's Belinda Clark amassed against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997 - nearly three years before Kerr was born.
The Australian was the first person to score a double hundred in ODI cricket when she amassed 229 against Denmark in Mumbai in 1997.
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.More news: Sydney Loofe: Duo charged after Tinder date murder
Kerr's innings is third highest in ODI cricket, behind Rohit Sharma's 264 and Martin Guptill's 237.
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. Both Kerr and Amy together stitched a 295-run partnership for the second wicket.
She also became the youngest ever to score a double ton across formats in worldwide cricket. But that too was brought to a close by the midway stage, when Kerr cleaned her up to pick the first of her five wickets.More news: ‘Trash Panda’ scaled a Minnesota skyscraper, and everyone loved it
