Kevin O’Brien's record century against England in famous World Cup win | #CWC11Rewind



Ireland produced one of the biggest shocks in world cup history as they overcame England in Bengaluru.

After being set an imposing target of 328 by England, as Jonathan Trott (92) narrowly missed out on a World Cup century & right-arm seamer John Mooney returned excellent figures of 4/63.

Ireland’s run chase got off to the worst possible start as they lost captain William Porterfield to the first ball of the innings. And it wouldn’t be until the loss of Ireland’s 5th wicket that their run-chase started to pick up serious momentum. As the pair of Kevin O’Brien and Alex Cusack put on a remarkable 162 runs for the 6th wicket partnership, a World Cup record stand.

That wouldn’t be the only record to be broken as Kevin O’Brien’s herculean 100 off just 50 balls became the fastest World Cup century in the tournament’s history. Guiding Ireland to the brink of victory O’Brien finally fell, leaving the winning moment to John Mooney as his boundary sealed victory for Ireland and sparked scenes of jubilation.

A true World Cup classic and quite possibly the biggest shock in the tournament’s history. A famous Irish victory ☘️
