The New Zealand Women’s cricket team became the first team to register 400+ runs in three consecutive One Day Internationals (men’s and women’s), and that’s history in itself.

Meanwhile, they are on a rampage, as they destroyed the Irish bowlers in their backyard. Moreover, the Kiwis are on tour to Ireland for a three-match ODI series and a one-off T20Is.

In the three innings so far, New Zealand have posted grand totals above 400 in all the games. In the first game, they registered 490/4, in the second 418/all-out, and in the 3rd ODI, they put on 440/3.

New Zealand’s Amelia Kerr, meanwhile, holds the record for the highest individual score in Women’s ODI cricket. She hammered an unbeaten 232 in 145 deliveries, smashing 31 fours and two sixes in the 3rd ODI against Ireland.

Kerr also is the youngest player to score a double century in International cricket. Her knock makes her the youngest at the age of 17 in both men’s and women’s game. It was Pakistan’s Javed Miandad who held the record at the age of 19 against New Zealand back in 1976. Kerr surpassed former Australia batswoman Belinda Clark’s unbeaten 229.

However, they have whitewashed the Ireland women’s team beating them in all the ODIs by massive margins.
