Amelia Kerr, 17, hits highest Women's ODI score of 232

White Ferns teenager Amelia Kerr has smashed her way into cricketing folklore with a world record knock.

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 carried her bat through and her innings was studded with 31 fours and two sixes.

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.

The earlier record of 229 not out in the name former Australian captain Belinda was set when Amelia was not even born.

Kylie Jenner ne veut plus exposer sa fille sur les réseaux sociaux
Kylie Jenner a supprimé toutes les photos montrant le visage de sa fille sur les réseaux sociaux: elle ne veut plus exposer Stormi "à partir de maintenant".

Kerr's 232 is the third-best in all ODI cricket, after Rohit Sharma's 264 for India against Sri Lanka in 2014 and fellow New Zealander Martin Guptill's 237no against Windies during the 2015 World Cup. Once Kerr was done demonstrating that she was wise beyond her years with the bat, she let a few of her legbreaks rip to cooly pocket a five-wicket haul and end Ireland's miserable week with their third successive defeat by 300-plus runs.

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. But the real frenzy began only after Ireland leggie Gaby Lewis - another 17-year-old - dismissed Satterthwaite, making room for Leigh Kasperek to arrive and join forces with Kerr for a partnership with 295 runs off just 199 balls.

The three-states campaign, dubbed "Cal-3", submitted more than 600,000 signatures. "Californians deserve a better future". If the measure is approved by voters, it would have to be ratified by Congress, which analysts say is unlikely.
