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

Asked if her approach had altered after she reached three figures, Kerr replied: "Not much changed too much; I just wanted to keep batting". They posted 440/3 with the bat in 305-run win.

Her innings at Clontarf Cricket Club was the second-highest in all women's formats and is only bettered by two knocks in men's ODIs.
