Walking out to open with Amy Satterthwaite, Kerr became just the second women cricketer, and seventh overall, 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.

Amelia Kerr's double century and five-wicket haul have helped New Zealand seal another victory by over 300 runs in the third ODI against Ireland women at Castle Avenue, Dublin. While Sehwag's records aren't the ones to be broken easily, a 17-year-old cricketer from New Zealand has broken the former Delhi dasher's record in style.

"I think I heard them say stuff on the speaker and everyone was clapping but I had no idea", said Kerr, who had not even heard of the previous record holder and was born three years after Clark made her score. The partnership lasted from the 15th to the 48th over.

White Ferns coach Haidee Tiffen said she knew the 17-year-old had a performance like this in her, but she never expected it so soon.

The Tawa College student has made her name as a bowler of some talent but wants to be regarded as an allrounder.

Kerr and Leigh Kasperek, who scored 113, combined for the second largest partnership of all time in women´s cricket of 295 runs for the second wicket.

Kerr has previously batted down the order for the national team, but was elevated to opener in Dublin and has long-term aspirations to return there.

Ireland legspinner Cara Murray had unflattering figures of 2-119, the new record for the most runs ever conceded in an ODI.

In the second ODI, they had posted 418.

With the total of 440, New Zealand once again crossed the 400-run mark in the ongoing series.
