At just 17, the Kiwi star smashed the record for the highest ever women's ODI score against Ireland.

New Zealand's Amelia Kerr created history on Wednesday when broke a record that was set even before she was born, scoring a double hundred against Ireland at Dublin.

In doing so, she also became the youngest cricketer to score a double-century in global cricket - a record previously held by former Pakistani great Javed Miandad in when he scored a double hundred at 19 years and 140 days in a Test against New Zealand in 1976.

Kerr's innings is third highest in ODI cricket, behind Rohit Sharma's 264 and Martin Guptill's 237.

Thanks to Kerr's fantastic innings New Zealand posted a mammoth total of 440/3 against Ireland. Kerr reached her double-century off 134 deliveries with a four in the 46th over. And she struck two boundaries off the fourth and fifth delivery and a six off the final to etched her name in cricket history books. Kerr carried her bat through and her innings was studded with 31 fours and two sixes.

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

Kerr, whose 295-run stand with Leigh Kasperek (113) for the second wicket helped the White Ferns to 440-3, then claimed 5-17 with her leg-spin as New Zealand skittled Ireland for 135 to seal a 3-0 series whitewash.

She is the youngest double centurion in all worldwide cricket.
