Amelia (Melie) Charlotte Kerr (born 2000) is a New Zealand cricketer who currently plays for Wellington and New Zealand. Born to former Wellington players Robbie and Jo, Kerr's cricketing pedigree goes as far back as her maternal grandfather Bruce Murray, the former New Zealand Test batsman.
Egged on to pursue legspin by her father, Kerr also opened the batting for Tawa College Boys 1st XI in Wellington's Premier Youth Grade, before playing for Wellington Blaze alongside Sophie Devine, one of her two cricketing idols besides Kane Williamson. A confident strokemaker, Kerr is the first player - male or female - to score a T20 century at the Basin Reserve, and the only one to have made two on that ground.
Barely a month past her 16th birthday, Kerr graduated from playing boys' grade cricket in school to making international debuts in both limited-overs formats, against Pakistan at home. In June 2017, she became New Zealand women's youngest representative in the World Cup, and three months later, she was the youngest female cricketer to bag a central contract with New Zealand Cricket.
