    Is this the ultimate sporting prodigy?

    Her opening partner lasted 10 balls before she was run out. None lasted longer (in terms of balls faced)

      By about the third duck, she'd have got the message and being hogging the strike. The later batters could have survived about 6 balls and still shared a big partnership.

        Amelia Kerr is now opening the batting for her district team, as well as bowling her full complement of leg spin overs. I don't know much about New Zealand. She's probably Foreign Secretary or reading the nightly news as well.

          She's just got Lanning and Viliaini in successive balls at the World Cup. She's a 16 year old veteran now.

            Indeed. The ICC website has a couple of her scalps up.

            She does indeed bowl a leg break. Bowled round the legs:

            Still bowls the wrong un, too:

                Am I imagining this, or does Amelia toss this one up a bit more than normal? Player of the tournament, Tammy Beaumont, holes out for 93.

                  Amelia Kerr is now the proud possessor of a NZ central contract.

                  In case she gets bored with leg spin, Wellington district have promoted her to open the batting as well.

                  Women's district teams play a rather neat format. 3 games in 3 days v the same opponents, a D/N T20 on the Friday and a mini-series of 2 50 overs games on Sat and Sun. I like that.
