New Zealand's Amelia Kerr Smashes Double Ton, Enters Record Books

She broke a 21-year-old record for the highest women's ODI score after going past Belinda Clark's 221, which the Australian scored against Denmark.

White Ferns teenager Amelia Kerr has smashed her way into cricketing folklore with a world record knock. Kerr carried her bat through and her innings was studded with 31 fours and two sixes.

Before Wednesday, Amelia's highest score was 81 not out and that was her lone fifty-plus innings. The record was earlier held by Javed Miandad, who scored a double hundred in a Test match at 19 years and 140 days.

Antoine Griezmann has made a decision on his future
Griezmann is expected to announce his future before his nation's World Cup campaign begins against Australia on Saturday. He made his France debut in 2016 and has scored three goals in 12 global games.

Kerr went past the previous highest individual score in women's ODI - held by Australia's Belinda Clark - with an unbeaten 232 off just 145 balls to help New Zealand post 440 for 3, which happens to be only their second-best batting effort of the series.

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. Amy Satterthwaite (61 off 45 balls) and Kerr provided the team with a flawless start, scoring 113 for the first wicket. Both Kerr and Amy together stitched a 295-run partnership for the second wicket. Una Raymond-Hoey led the way for the hosts, with 42 runs from 68 balls before being dismissed by Kerr, who also claimed four of the last five wickets.

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