New Zealand all rounder Amelia Kerr is all of 17 and on Wednesday (13 June),she brought the roofs down with her performance both with bat and bowl. As their team beaten Ireland by 3-0. If posting 490 and 418 was not enough in the first two ODIs, New Zealand put 440 runs on the board and won the match by 305 runs,and the lady who made the highest individual score in Women’s ODI and also picked up five-fer all on the same day.
Kerr played a magnificent knock of 232 on 145 balls. Highest score in an ODI going past Belinda Clark’s 229 that came way back in 1997. However,the teenager was unaware of her feat as she went about hammering fours and sixes in her innings. I had no idea “Kerr said after the game”
Kerr’s previous best of 152 had come in an under 21 match,but the way she went about converting her hundred into a double one before taking it to a whole new pedestal.
For the records Kerr stacked up to headline the morning newspapers next day,she was nothing but unassuming. And that should take her a long way to her career.
