New Zealand women cricketer Amelia Kerr has set a new world batting record in women's one-day cricket after she smashed an unbeaten 232 runs against Ireland in Dublin on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old Kerr broke the record total during the third match of the series, a few days after the White Ferns scored 490-4 - cricket's highest-ever ODI total.

In her inning, the Wellington player, scored 31 fours and two sixes.

Australia's Belinda Clark had previously held the record - 229 not out against Denmark in 1997.

Kerr's 232 is third highest in ODI cricket history.

Indian cricket team's Rohit Sharma is at the top of the table with his 264 runs scored against Sri Lanka in 2014, followed by unbeaten 237 made by New Zealand's Martin Guptill, against West Indies in 2015.
