New Zealand’s Amelia Kerr hits 232 to smash women’s ODI record | Sport

New Zealand’s Amelia Kerr hit an international record 232 no longer out within the 3rd one-day world in opposition to Ireland after which took 5 wickets to whole a exceptional day for the 17-year-old. 

Kerr batted throughout the innings and surpassed the 229 no longer out set by means of Australia’s Belinda Clark in opposition to Denmark in 1997 with a four-four-six collection from the overall 3 deliveries as New Zealand posted 440 for 3. 

She hit 31 obstacles and two sixes in her 145-ball knock, then after a 10-minute nap at the physio’s desk between innings, took Five-17 as Ireland had been bowled out for 135 to give the White Ferns a 305-run win and Three-Zero collection victory. 

Kerr and Leigh Kasperek, who scored 113, mixed for the second one greatest partnership of all time in girls’s cricket of 295 runs for the second one wicket. 
Kerr, on the other hand, stated she had no clue when she was once batting that the data had been tumbling. 

“I think I heard them say stuff on the speaker and everyone was clapping but I had no idea,” stated Kerr, who had no longer even heard of the former record holder and was once born 3 years after Clark made her ranking.

“After my innings I had a little nap and then went out to field. I was a bit sore,” Kerr stated. “I didn’t think I was going to bowl. I thought Suzie would let me stand at slip all day.”

New Zealand, who posted an international record for women and men after they scored 490 for 4 within the first one-day world, now head to England for a triangular Twenty20 collection with the hosts and South Africa.
