Kerr, New Zealand women set up records

At 17 years and 243 days Amelia Kerr is also the youngest double-centurion in the format across genders

Recently, New Zealand Women broke the world record for the highest one-day global score by posting a huge 490/4 total against Ireland in Dublin on Friday.

Kerr also starred with the ball, taking five for 17 in seven overs as New Zealand went on to beat Ireland by 305 runs after dismissing the hosts for 135 in Dublin.

The 17-year-old broke the record with two fours and one six in last three balls of New Zealand's innings.

She also became the youngest ever to score a double ton across formats in global cricket.

Amelia Kerr smashes the highest score in women's ODI cricket.

Kerr's 232 is the third-best in all ODI cricket, after Rohit Sharma's 264 for India against Sri Lanka in 2014 and fellow New Zealander Martin Guptill's 237no against Windies during the 2015 World Cup.

"I will sleep well, I have to stay up until 10 o'clock to finish (reality TV show) Love Island but then we'll be in bed", Kerr said.

North Korea summit in Singapore
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump have arrived in Singapore for an unprecedented summit . It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

Disbelief, humbled, exhausted - just a few of the emotions Amelia Kerr says she felt after her record-breaking performance against Ireland this morning.

"I didn't get off to a flyer, I had to work hard".

"I didn´t think I was going to bowl". Kerr's unbeaten innings makes her only the second woman to score a double hundred in ODI cricket.

"I could hear announcements [about her records] being made over the loudspeakers but I couldn't hear because of all the clapping".

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

Victory saw the White Ferns complete a 3-0 series sweep over Ireland, with every one of those wins by colossal margins of over 300 runs. The White Ferns are about to play England and South Africa in a tri-series.
