Cricket World Cup: Brilliant Ireland shock England

Ireland 329-7 (49.1 overs) bt England 327-8 (50 ovs) by three wickets
Match scorecard





Kevin O'Brien blazed the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history as Ireland pulled off an astonishing victory over England in Bangalore.
He smashed 113 off 63 balls as Ireland recovered from 111-5 to overhaul their target of 328 with five balls to spare and three wickets in hand.
Earlier, fifties from Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell had driven England to an imposing 327-8.
But O'Brien's stunning assault powered Ireland to a famous triumph.
Only three days after England's thrilling tie with India, Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium played host to another of one-day cricket's most dramatic encounters as Ireland produced the highest run chase ever at the World Cup.
O'Brien, a 26-year-old all-rounder who had never made a fifty in nine previous World Cup innings, turned the match on its head with a brutal display of hitting featuring 13 fours and six sixes and a partnership of 162 with Alex Cusack.
Dropped on 91 by England captain Andrew Strauss, he went on to reach his century off 50 balls, 16 fewer than the previous tournament record set by former Australia opener Matthew Hayden.

And although O'Brien was run out in the penultimate over, John Mooney was on hand to smash the first ball of the last over for four and spark delirious celebrations in the Ireland camp.
"To see any team win from that position is quite something but when they are the underdogs it is something truly special," said BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew on Test Match Special.
Former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott added: "It's disappointing if you are an England supporter but Ireland were absolutely fantastic.


That's like the USA winning the world cup in soccer....near on impossible affraid
