Kevin O’Brien’s biggest claim to fame is the enviable record of scoring the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history, but the Irishman’s big-hitting ways have come back to bite him.
The 36-year-old became a national hero in March 2011 when he scored a ton off just 50 balls en route to making 113 off 63. His exploits helped Ireland chase down a huge total of 327 to record a famous win over England in India.
On Thursday, however, the all-rounder proved his own worst enemy when one of his eight sixes during a Twenty20 clash soared into the parking lot of Dublin’s Pembroke Cricket Club.
After the match, O’Brien headed straight for a local dealership to repair the damage.
O’Brien’s 82 off 37 balls helped the Lightning to a 24-run win over North-West Warriors via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial Twenty20 Trophy reduced to 12 overs apiece.
