New Zealand´s Kerr hits world record 232 not out against Ireland

Kerr is now the second women and seventh overall cricketer to go past the 200-run mark in one-day worldwide cricket.

Her unbeaten 232, set when batting through the entire White Ferns innings, set a new benchmark for the highest score in women's ODI history.

The 17-year-old hit 31 fours and two sixes in her 145-ball knock as she led New Zealand to a score of 440/3 in 50 overs.

New Zealand's Amelia Kerr on Wednesday broke the record for the highest individual score in women's ODI in a match against Ireland in Dublin.

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

She also hit the second most boundaries in an ODI innings, behind Rohit Sharma's 33 in his 264.

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.

Kerr, whose highest ODI score before this series had been 30, signed for Kia Super League side Southern Vipers in May. 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.

Kasperek posted a career-best 113, including 10 fours, from 105 balls to eclipse her previous best of 21 not out against India in June, 2015. 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.

Ireland stood little chance in the chase, losing wickets at regular intervals and succumbing after 44 overs.
