The stand is also the women's ODI record for second wicket anda New Zealand record for any wicket.

Post the double, Kerr had four overs to overtake the Australian's long-standing record and the teenager eclipsed that with a six off the final ball of the New Zealand innings.

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.
