At just 17, the Kiwi star smashed the record for the highest ever women's ODI score against Ireland. And White Ferns now hold the record for top three totals in one day internationals. The 17-year-old scored unbeaten 232 to break Belinda Clark's 21-year-old record of 229.

DUBLIN: New Zealand´s Amelia Kerr hit a world record 232 not out in the third one-day worldwide against Ireland on Wednesday and then took five wickets to complete a remarkable day for the 17-year-old.

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

Before Wednesday, Amelia's highest score was 81 not out and that was her lone fifty-plus innings. The 17-year-old Kerr had scored less than 174 runs in ODI cricket before smashing the Irish bowlers to all parts of the ground during her innings of 232 not out of 145 deliveries.

SNP walk out of Commons after weird Speaker row
The Scottish government claims this could prevent it from passing its own laws in these areas for seven years. But Scottish Conservative MP Kirstene Hair decried the SNP's actions.

She was also involved in the second-highest partnership in women's ODI cricket, as she and Otago Sparks all-rounder Leigh Kasperek (113) piled on 285-runs for the second-wicket. She has also taken 31 ODI wickets.

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.

"New Zealand, who posted a world record for men and women when they scored 490 for four in the first one-day worldwide, now head to England for a triangular Twenty20 series with the hosts and South Africa".

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).
