Amy Hunter became the youngest-ever batter to score an international century in Ireland Women's clash against Zimbabwe.

On her 16th birthday, she struck an unbeaten 121 in Harare to become the youngest player, male or female, to score a one-day international century.

The youngest male batter was Pakistan star Shahid Afridi who scored 102 against Sri Lanka aged 16 and 217 days, while the youngest woman was India's Mithali Raj with 114 not out against Ireland aged 16 and 205 days.

Hunter's 121 was the only century of Ireland's innings as they powered to 312 for three from their 50 overs.

Her runs came off 127 deliveries and included eight fours, as Ireland won by 85 runs to take a 3-1 lead in the series.

Hunter made her one-day international debut against Zimbabwe in the first game of the series on 5 October.

Her international debut came against Scotland in her native Belfast in May.
